I Corinthians 6:9-20 Your Body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit

In the ongoing series, “Cross Current,” from the book of 1 Corinthians, Pastor Leonard addresses the challenge of sexual immorality by affirming the importance of our embodied lives (I Corinthians 6:9-20). If you’ve ever wondered, “Why does God care about our genitalia?” this sermon has the answer. Our bodies are intimate sanctuaries of God so what we do with them directly impacts God. To love God provides the power and direction to do with our bodies what is God’s perfect design. When God gets involved with the intimate details of our embodied existence, the cultural patterns and norms are sometimes turned on their head. We may pay the price of a prostitute, but God paid the higher price to redeem us body and soul.
