1 Corinthians 6:12-20 – Tearing Down the Temple of God

1 Corinthians 6:12-20 – Tearing Down the Temple of God

When Potiphar’s wife asked Joseph to lie with her, Joseph fled for his life and said, “How can I sin against the Lord and do this thing?” Joseph’s reaction to Mrs. Potiphar’s pass demonstrated that he had a biblical understanding of sexual sin. He understood that when we sin sexually, we don’t just sin against our own body, we sin against the Lord.
Paul will remind us again in today’s text that our bodies are the holy dwelling place of God. He will also teach us about the deep mystery of the spirituality of sex, and warn us that if we commit sexual sin we are in effect tearing down the temple of God!
May God convict us of these truths as we study His Word today,
George
