1 Corinthians Chapter 6: Honor God with Your Body — Flee from Sexual Immorality

In this passage of Scripture, we learn to balance our freedom of choice with Paul’s reminder that our bodies are temples of Christ and that sexual immorality is an affront to Him.

Our new devotional series focuses on Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians. This important letter still serves as wise guidance for our churches today, almost 2,000 years later.
