Every day we can see examples of sexual impurity on billboards, TV, the Internet and even in clothing stores. As time goes by, people have become more accepting of behavior that the Bible says is wrong.
In our Bible verses today, Paul talks about how to please God. He had a lot to say about sexual immorality — sexual behavior that is outside the Biblical plan for marriage. Paul uses some strong words in these verses. Verse 8 says, “So anyone who refuses to obey this teaching is refusing to obey God, not us. And God is the one who gives you his Holy Spirit.”
God says that sexual purity is very important. So we should think it is important, too. God wants all believers to avoid sexual immorality and be pure. If you are struggling with keeping yourself pure, ask God to help you understand His Word. He will help you control your body and give Him glory.
