Bought with a price!

Scripture reading for July 13th:  1st Corinthians 6

Key Scriptures for over-comers:  1st Corinthians 6:18-20  Flee from sexual immorality.  All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.  Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?  You are not your own, you were bought at a price.  Therefore honor God with your body.”  

Sexual immorality is a favorite temptation of Satan to snare God’s people.  King David, a man after God’s heart, was trapped by this sin and Joseph of more ancient times was tempted sexually by Potiphar’s wife but used his feet to escape the trap.  Paul warned the Corinthians, living in a very immoral sexual culture, of the danger of sexual sins of all types.  When believers sin sexually, they sin against their own body.  Each believer has been purchased by the blood of Jesus Christ from Satan’s domain and now belong to God.  We must flee all sexual immorality to avoid reproach in our own lives as well as Christ’s church.

Observations for over-comers:  Over-comers must flee all sexual immorality and keep themselves only for the Lord, who has bought them!  “One day he went into the house to attend to his duties, and none of the household servants was inside.  She caught him by his cloak and said, “Come to bed with me!” But he left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house.”  (Genesis 39:11-12) (Joseph with Potiphar’s wife)
