Sexual Sin

What do you do when you feel conviction? Glorify God, put away sin, put on Christ, reject sin.

The body is not for sexual sin. We are the body of Christ. Would you have some part of Christ defiled by it being with a prostitute? We are FLEE immorality!
1 Corinthians 6:12-20

12 All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 Food is for the stomach and the stomach is for food, but God will do away with both of them. Yet the body is not for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body. 14 Now God has not only raised the Lord, but will also raise us up through His power. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? May it never be! 16 Or do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, “The two shall become one flesh.” 17 But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him. 18 Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

God wants you to be sanctified. You must avoid sexual immorality and control yourself in honor, not lustful passion.Reject the fact that you have been called in sanctification, and you reject God. When you are sexually immoral, when you are sexually impure, you are kicking God to the curb – you are rejecting God!

1 Thes 4:3-8

3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality; 4 that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, 5 not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God; 6 and that no man transgress and defraud his brother in the matter because the Lord is the avenger in all these things, just as we also told you before and solemnly warned you. 7 For God has not called us for the purpose of impurity, but in sanctification. 8 So, he who rejects this is not rejecting man but the God who gives His Holy Spirit to you.

To avoid rejecting god, you must walk by the Spirit. It is GOD who can prevent you from sinning like that. But you must turn to God and rely on God and fill yourself with the knowledge of God.

Galatians 5:16-17

16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. 17 For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please.

Put on the Lord Jesus Christ – the image is that of a cloak being wrapped around you to protect you from the weather. We must make preparations to live by the Spirit, rather than making provisions to indulge the flesh and its lusts!

Romans 13:13-14

13 Let us behave properly as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality, not in strife and jealousy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts.

We must put aside filthiness and wickedness. We must study, heard, and receive the Word and be doers of the Word.

James 1:19-27

 21 Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls. 22 But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; 24 for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was. 25 But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does.

26 If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is worthless. 27 Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

Sexual sin is rooted in pride and selfishness, using others. You must recognize and repent of your pride and selfishness, or you will never be free.

This is an awesome testimony of someone who had a sexual addiction:

  1. On this topic, we must mortify, mortify, mortify (the old KJV word) the deeds of the flesh by the Spirit. Rom 8;13

    • Amen!
      Romans 8:13

      13 for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

      Colossians 3:5

      5 Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry.
