Pastor Steve DeWitt finishes chapter 6 of First Corinthians by taking a hard look at how we can glorify God with our bodies and why it is important for us to contrast the "Corinthian" view of sexual intimacy with a greater understanding of God's plan for it.


15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! 16 Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, "The two will become one flesh." 17 But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. 18 Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:15 — 1 Corinthians 6:20 ESV
