ABSTAIN FROM ILLICIT A
AFFAIRS

1THESS. 4:3-5

Purity is the perfection of the Christian character. It is the command of God that we should be Holy in all of our conduct even in our courtship as children of God. All manners of sexual sins are vices that unbelievables freely indulge in our world as was practice of pagans in Apostle Paul’s day. They are uncontrolled as far as relations between the sexes is concerned. But Christians will not be uncontrolled but must restrain their Passions. Partners in courtship must watch with self- control over their passion. They must abstain from illicit affairs, that is, avoid being sexually immoral in any way. They must realise that if they commit sexual immorality, they shame themselves and harm others. They must also realise that they also sin against God for God’s purpose for them in courtship is for them to be holy and thereby glorify Him. We must know that we received our body in order to serve God with it “ ln sanctification” which means ‘ separated for God’. Our body is a vessel that must not be used to satisfy lustful passion.

POINT OF EMPHASIS: Abstain from sexual immorality.

PRAYER POINT: God, help me to be holy.
Reading The Bible Through in a Year: Morning: Jn. 17; Evening: Judg. 9-10.
