Studying the Truths of the New Testament | 04

AUTHOR: Holy Scripture

The discipline of study involves engaging God’s Word which is declared to be profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

READ:

Read or listen to 1 Corinthians 6:12–20.

Everything is permissible for me,” but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me,” but I will not be mastered by anything. “Food is for the stomach and the stomach for food,” and God will do away with both of them. However, the body is not for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. God raised up the Lord and will also raise us up by his power. Don’t you know that your bodies are a part of Christ’s body? So should I take a part of Christ’s body and make it part of a prostitute? Absolutely not! Don’t you know that anyone joined to a prostitute is one body with her? For Scripture says, The two will become one flesh. But anyone joined to the Lord is one spirit with him.

Flee sexual immorality! Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the person who is sexually immoral sins against his own body. Don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought at a price. So glorify God with your body.

 

Note all the ways Paul talks about the body or flesh. What implications does this have for our theology of sex? What is the difference between sin committed outside the body and those committed against one’s own body? 

The written Scripture is CSB, however, the audio Scripture is ESV.

FOCUS:

In addition to our mentors from the Bible, our siblings in Christ also serve as guides in our journey of growth in knowledge of the Lord.
