Daily Devotional – Staying True and Pure

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from 1 Corinthians 6: 12-20. God has warned us of the consequences of being unfaithful to our spouse. The act of sex is the coming together of 2 bodies into 1 flesh. In the same way that we can not serve 2 masters, your flesh can not be joined to more than one other.

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.” The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also.

15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.”[b] 17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.[c]

18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

The sixth command in the law of Moses is “You shall not commit adultery.” Exodus 20:14. There are many more benefits to being pure and true to your spouse only. The world portrays a seductive and enticing lifestyle, only to grip you within its sin clutches and pull you down.

The bible speaks of how we become one flesh during sexual interactions. We become “joined at the hip”! How can we tear that connection apart to become attached to someone else? Paul says in Corinthians how sexual sin is a sin that causes harm unto yourself. As selfish people, why would selfish people cause harm to themselves? Mores o as God’s body and bride, why would we cause harm to the body of Christ and His bride?

We are called to live lives of self-control. The Holy Spirit is there to empower this life and discipline. If we lean on and abide in Christ, the Holy Spirit will give us the strength to glorify God through our bodies and relationships!

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, God, for sending the Holy Spirit to empower us and give us the fruit of self-control. I give myself to You and Your body to be a pure spotless bride for You and Your glory.

In Jesus name
Amen
