“Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Cor. 6:18-20
If there is anything that stands out above all else when it comes to sex as far as the Bible is concerned, it’s this. Our entire lives – sex included – need to be submitted to the Lord Jesus Christ. He is Lord, we belong to Him, we are to live for Him, our lives are to be a living sacrifice to Him, we are to love, honor, obey, revere, and worship God in all things, and sex is not to be kept in some separate and secret compartment of our lives.
Sex and its role in our lives is to be surrendered utterly to Christ. This means we are to FLEE anything and everything in the way of sex that is not ordained by God. This means we are to SEEK FORGIVENESS and REPENT FROM anything in the way of sex that is not pleasing and honoring to God. This means NO MATTER WHAT THE WORLD AND OUR FLESH AND THE DEVIL TELL US IS OKAY IN THE WAY OF SEX should NOT DETERMINE the role sex plays in our lives. This means ALL SIN IN THE WAY OF ANYTHING IN THE CATEGORY OF SEX THAT IS NOT OKAY IN GOD ALMIGHTY’S EYES needs to be done away with immediately.
This means ADULTERY, PORNOGRAPHY, SEX OUTSIDE MARRIAGE, HOMOSEXUALITY, CROSS DRESSING, CHANGING GENDERS, IDENTIFYING WITH A DIFFERENT GENDER, BISEXUALITY, INCEST, SEXUAL ABUSE, RAPE, SEXUAL ACTIVITIES WITH ANIMALS, AND ANYTHING ELSE OUTSIDE THE CONFINES OF WHAT GOD SAYS IS OKAY IN HIS WORD AS FAR AS SEX IS CONCERNED IS SIN THAT NEEDS TO BE REPENTED OF.
What must we do with any and all of this? FLEE! Flee what? FLEE SEXUAL IMMORALITY! Why? Because God says so! When? NOW! Not in the future. Not when we feel like it. Not when the time seems right. Not when someone finds us out. Not when guilt overcomes us. Not when another option comes along. NOW!
What must we do? SUBMIT OURSELVES TO GOD ENTIRELY in ALL matters of SEX and SEXUALITY!
For Christ’s sake!
