Weird: Sexuality – Day 3 of 5
One look at television advertisements or one listen to a popular radio station will quickly show that our culture is obsessed with sex. It’s idolized in books, magazines, movies, TV, music, and so on. Sadly, most of what we see and hear would be considered sinful, or against God’s standards.
For example, reading through the New Testament, one will discover a number of sins that are to be avoided. But in the majority of these passages, one specific sin is mentioned more than any other – sexual immorality. (Examples include Romans 13:13, 1 Corinthians 5:1, 6:13, Galatians 5:19, Ephesians 5:3, Colossians 3:5, and 1 Thessalonians 4:3-8, among others). Some passages, such as 1 Corinthians 6:18 call for us to flee, or run from sexual immorality.

Prayer: Father, Your Word clearly shows that as a follower of Jesus, I am to flee from sexual immorality. I pray that You will reveal to me any immorality that I may have in my thoughts or actions. In fact, today I would like to confess to you that some of my thoughts and actions have gone against Your desires for me. I pray for Your forgiveness, and I ask for Your wisdom in identifying anything else in my life that leads me away from Your desires. Amen.
