Scripture - 1 Corinthians 6

Observe it - Paul was instructing the people of Corinth and teaching them that we should take care of our bodies because they are the temple of the Holy Spirit. The Corinthians believed that just as food satisfies our stomachs, it was okay to satisfy other natural appetites. But, just like too much food can be bad for us, so can other things, and in this case, it was sexual immorality. 

Apply It - When wrestling with any sin, questions you can ask yourself are: What does God’s word teach about this? Is it something that will overpower you? It’s hard to resist any kind of temptation, but when you are struggling over sin, ask these questions, pray for freedom, and talk with other Christians who walk with you through your struggle. 

Prayer - Father, I know there are things that I have done that have tried to pull me away from you. I ask that you forgive me and bring me freedom. I ask that you reign and rule over my heart. Help me to be obedient to what the Holy Spirit says in my life. In Your name, Amen.
