September 21

As we venture into this next chapter of Ephesians, I decided to get bold with God. I took my hands off the keyboard and said, “you take control for this section!” His response to me was, “I already did! Look at my scripture.” God does not mince words when it comes to sexual immorality. This includes adultery, sexual acts of a married person with someone other than their spouse, and fornication, sexual acts between the unmarried. I’m not sure how a Christian can get away with this without being riddled with guilt. If you’ve toyed around with promiscuousness, and have no guilt or feel no shame, you had better check your salvation! He is very clear that a whoremonger has NO inheritance in the kingdom of Christ. Over and over again, He tells us not to live like the world does. We get beat up pretty bad whether we do or not, but I would rather get beat by the world than deal with the consequence of going against God and His precepts. It is guaranteed that once the light of God and His holiness illuminates you, any darkness and sin will be exposed. It would be like wearing a white robe that has muddy handprints all over it, or like a pig that has wallowed in his own filth. I certainly don’t want to look or smell like that, do you? Let the Holy Spirit be your guide, He will give you warnings. You will never be tempted beyond what you can handle, you can be sure of it! Ephesians 5:1-14

For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Ephesians 5:5
