Immorality is pervasive in our world, but it is not new. Millennia ago, the Psalmist asked, “How can a young person keep their way pure?” For that matter, how can anyone? Paul’s teaching about the Holy Spirit helps us. It turns out that the same Spirit who raised Jesus from the grave lives in us as believers empowering us to live lives of purity. Precisely because it cost Jesus his life to buy us, we no longer belong to ourselves or others for that matter. As the temple in which God the Holy Spirit lives, we glorify God not only with our minds and our hearts, but with our bodies.
In Step with the Spirit of Purity
