Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
Hebrews 10:38 KJV
LIVE BY FAITH
Obedience to Christ is lived by faith,
A sober and regenerating love.
A child of God is not some flimsy wraith
Who always doubts salvation from above.
When justified, the saved will turn to Christ,
As natural as flowers turn to light.
Redemption’s not a treat that thinly sliced,
It’s paid for at the cross in full, outright.
If any man draw back from fear or shame,
To shrink away completely from belief,
Or think that righteousness is his to claim,
Perdition will be his with no relief.
Go boldly now in Christ with confidence;
Have faith in Jesus – He’s deliverance.

1 Corinthians 6:16-20 (MSG)
There’s more to sex than mere skin on skin. Sex is as much spiritual mystery as physical fact. As written in Scripture, “The two become one.” Since we want to become spiritually one with the Master, we must not pursue the kind of sex that avoids commitment and intimacy, leaving us more lonely than ever—the kind of sex that can never “become one.” There is a sense in which sexual sins are different from all others. In sexual sin we violate the sacredness of our own bodies, these bodies that were made for God-given and God-modeled love, for “becoming one” with another. Or didn’t you realize that your body is a sacred place, the place of the Holy Spirit? Don’t you see that you can’t live however you please, squandering what God paid such a high price for?
The physical part of you is not some piece of property belonging to the spiritual part of you. God owns the whole works. So let people see God in and through your body.
