Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 6:15-20

Memory Verse: Keep on running away from sexual immorality. Any other sin that a person commits is outside his body, but the person who sins sexually sins against his own body. 1 Corinthians 6:18 (ISV)

Sex was established by God to be enjoyed only in marriage. Hebrews 13:4 (NIV) says, “Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral”. The society may call sex fun but it is much more than that. Sex is far more than the joining of both the male and female partner. Sex is the joining of the spirit, soul and body of the individuals involved. 1 Cor. 6:16 (CSB) says, “Don’t you know that anyone joined to a prostitute is one body with her? For Scripture says, The two will become one flesh.” Sex is a covenant.

Many lives, businesses, families, government and nations are suffering from serious spiritual attack because of this menace (Nahum 3:1-4). The activities of witchcraft have prospered over many destinies because of this same reason. One of the surest way to destruction is sex outside marriage. TV commercials, radio jingles, bill board advertisement, pop-up from the internet, pornographic sites, reality shows, etc., have wrongly defined sex to the 21st century man. This is unfortunate. The Bible has the final say.

But, why do people practice sex outside marriage?:

1. Ignorance: People perish because they lack knowledge. Some people don’t see anything wrong in it, however, that does not cancel the attendant destructive consequence of sex outside marriage.

2. Carelessness: Many got emotionally involved with the opposite sex when they didn’t take caution and before they knew it, they fell victims. Every relationship must be well defined and must have a healthy boundary. Why should you be discussing with the opposite sex alone in the secret? Friend, you have got blood running in your veins hence, you are fallible. Take caution.

3. Poverty: In a bid to make ends meet some people fell prey and consequently entered into a much bigger spiritual bondage. No matter the magnitude of your wants and needs, you are not permitted to break divine laws. The Bible says, “The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.” 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NLT)

4. Curiosity: It is curiosity that makes a person smell what he shouldn’t eat. Your body hormones must never take the driver seat of your life. Flee from youthful lust.
