SPRING FORTH NOW 2023
Just because something is technically legal doesn’t mean that it’s spiritually appropriate. If I went around doing whatever I thought I could get by with, I’d be a slave to my whims. You know the old saying, “First you eat to live, and then you live to eat”? Well, it may be true that the body is only a temporary thing, but that’s no excuse for stuffing your body with food, or indulging it with sex. Since the Master honors you with a body, honor him with your body! God honored the Master’s body by raising it from the grave. He’ll treat yours with the same resurrection power. Until that time, remember that your bodies are created with the same dignity as the Master’s body. You wouldn’t take the Master’s body off to a whorehouse, would you? I should hope not. 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.
I Corinthians 6:12-20 (MSG)
Just because you can do something does not mean you should do it. Life is filled with choices and opportunities and if you are not aware of who you are and what is your purpose and plan, you will all for anything that will provide what appears to be satisfaction. Please remember God has not created His world and you for you to just simply settle and be satisfied, God has created the world and you to prosper, be fruitful and multiply, have life and life more abundantly. You must see yourself as Set Apart from the ordinary or mundane of life to excel in and through all things. Choose to believe that what should be for your life is and that God, the universe, and all of creation have been set in order for you to achieve. You will experience difficulty, it is life, but stay on the course of what are your purpose and plan, continuously see yourself and outcomes as Set Apart just for you and walk in your Most Favored Status. God wills for you to live and live abundantly, walk worthy of God’s faith in you by believing in yourself and being true to you making His Word for your life, flesh, real!
