Scripture: 1 Corinthians 6:13 But you can’t say that our bodies were made for sexual immorality. They were made for the Lord, and the Lord cares about our bodies.
Devotional: This is an important truth to recognize in the quest for sexual purity. Your body is not made for sexual immorality. Many people would say, “If God didn’t mean for me to have sex – lots of sex – I wouldn’t have these desires.” Nothing could be further from the truth.
Your body is made for God, and every desire you have is there to draw you closer to Him. Even the sexual ones. For when you seek to keep those desires within the context of His purpose, it drives you to Him to give you strength to contain those desires until the time comes when they are fulfilled as He intended them to be. And when that happens, it is the most beautiful thing!
Satan always wants to corrupt what God has made beautiful and holy. Don’t be deceived and fall for his counterfeit ways. His temptations always chew people up and spit them out. And they destroy the one who falls prey to them.
You are made for the Lord and He cares so much about you.
