The Case for Moral Purity.

October 3, 2018 by Dr. Jack Graham

Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.”
—2 Corinthians 6:12-20
We’re living in a sexed-crazed society.  We’re living in a society in which now operates sexually like an open sewer and it’s been called a sexual revolution and even called by some, including some ministers, the new morality.  But the fact is, it’s not a new morality at all.  It’s just the same old immorality that’s been around for thousands and thousands of years.
David is the perfect example.  King David, a man after God’s own heart, loved God more than most of us.  He fell to sexual sin because he did not watch and guard himself.  And as a result even though he was forgiven, even though he was cleansed, even though he’s in heaven today at the throne in the presence of God, he paid in his life some consequences as he reaped the bitter fruit of his sin all of his days.
Today, many want to know, “How can I be morally pure?”
The best way to deal with this sin is not to debate it, not hang around to try to discuss it, but get your shoes on and run, run, run! Every Christian ought to run just a little bit scared today. Everywhere you go, there are these temptations…in our music, in the media, our television, our movies. The scripture says, “Flee sexual immorality.”
Jesus saved us that He might deliver us from our sin. He saved us that we wouldn’t have to be destroyed and defeated by this sin or any other sin.
