Sexual Sin Is Serious

Be careful how to think and act about sexual sin.
God's commands about sexual purity are loving. They protect us and guide us into relationships designed for our greatest good.

Recently I read about a teen who'd signed a pledge of purity at her Christian school. When she got pregnant, she didn't feel her "mistake" should affect her privileges at the school.(1)

Christ gave up His privileges as God and died a criminal's death to pay for sins (Philippians 2:8; Hebrews 12:2).

Sins aren't simply "mistakes," and sexual sins are serious:

“Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit… 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-20 

When Romans 1:18-32 describes the depravity of mankind, sexual sins play a prominent role. 

God forgives, but He expects us to humbly acknowledge sins for what they are and show genuine sorrow (James 4:8-10; 1 John 1:8-10).

Be careful how to think and act about sexual sin.
