It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister. The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told you and warned you before.

– 1 Thessalonians 4:3-6 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Christian chastity is not based upon a view of sex as sinful, but a view of sex as holy. So holy that sex is not to be used as a weapon against others. Instead, God has given us all that we need to control an urge that is so powerful that only a covenant between a husband and wife can properly contain it. Don’t be deceived by what the media tells us, we can control our sexual urges and show honor to others.
