WORD FOR TODAY. CJM
WORD FOR TODAY. CJM Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. KJV
Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body. 1 Cor. 6:18. NIV
The body is for the Lord; is to be an instrument of righteousness to holiness, therefore is never to be made an instrument of sin. It is an honour to the body, that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead; and it will be an honour to our bodies, that they will be raised.
Sins in general or the common sins which people commit do not immediately and directly affect the body, or waste its energies, and destroy life. Such is the case with falsehood, theft, malice, dishonesty, pride, ambition, etc.
HOWEVER, FORNICATION is more serious. When one commit fornication, he/she SINS against his own body – The Body is AFFECTED IMMEDIATELY!
It wastes the bodily energies; produces feebleness, weakness, and disease; it impairs the strength, enervates the man, and shortens life.
Fornication defined: Voluntary sexual intercourse between a man and woman who are not married to each other is a common type of fornication. Adultery is a type of fornication.
In the New Testament, “fornication” comes from the Greek word porneia, which includes adultery and incest. Porneia comes from another Greek word that also includes indulging in any kind of unlawful lust, which would include homosexuality.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!!
