Baptismal life and sexual immorality

This Sunday we addressed the subject of sexual ethics and the Christian life. It is amazing how little we discuss the beauty of our sexuality, especially as ones claimed in Baptism and redeemed by the cross.

One thing that struck me again was Paul's words from I Corinthians 6, "Do you not know that your bodies are a temple of the Holy Spirit?" He also makes a distinction of sexual sins above others. "All other sins are outside the body, but sexual immorality is within." This is important for us to remember as Christians. When we sin sexually we are uniting Christ with a prostitute. Our bodies are made for a perfect union of husband and wife. A union brought together at the Garden and to be lived out today.

May we live a sexually pure and decent life and husbands and wives love and honor each other.
