Title:Body, Incarnation & Sex
1 Corinthians 6:12 - 12"All things are lawful for me," but not all things are helpful. "All things are lawful for me," but I will not be dominated by anything.
1 Corinthians 6:13-16 - 13"Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food"—and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.14And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power. 15Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! 16Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, "The two will become one flesh."
Genesis 1:31- 31And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
Psalm 139:13-16 - 13 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. 14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.15 My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
Genesis 1:27- 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Quote -“To be a Christian is to believe in the impossible. Jesus was God. Jesus was human.” Madeline L’Engle
Quote - “You should point to the whole man, Jesus Christ, and say ‘That is God.’ The man, Jesus Christ, is God.” Martin Luther
John 1:14 – 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
1 Corinthians 6:13 – 13 "Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food"—and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.
1 Corinthians 6:14 – 14 And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power.
Quote - “So when the devil throws your sins in your face and declares that you deserve death and hell, tell him this: "I admit that I deserve death and hell, what of it? For I know One who suffered and made satisfaction on my behalf. His name is Jesus Christ, Son of God, and where He is there I shall be also!” Martin Luther
1 Corinthians 6:15 – 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never!
1 Corinthians 6:16 – 16 Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, "The two will become one flesh."
Quote - “There is more to sex than meets the eye—or excites the genitals. There is no such thing as casual sex, no matter how casual people are about it. No one can take sex out at night and put it away until he wants to play with it again, nobody can go to bed with someone and leave his soul parked outside.” Lewis Smedes
1 Corinthians 6:17 – 17 But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him.
1 Corinthians 6:18 – 18 Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.
1 Corinthians 6:19 – 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,
1 Corinthians 6:20 – 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
