Flee Fornication!



Memory Verse:

“Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body”






There are sins one should not only avoid but flee according to the Scriptures.


But, these dimensions of sin called “Fornication and Adultery” seem to be easily committed by the people of the world, and some professing to be in the body of Christ.


Some call it weakness, to some is called enjoyment, to another set of people is known as temptation.


In whatever ways it is regarded to be; the culprit is hereby admonished by the Word of God to desist from such or flee from it in order to be freed from impending penalty/ Divine Judgment.


Here is the biblical account regarding the works of the flesh:

“For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live”

(Rom.8: 13).


Our bodies must be put or brought under control: via the light of the Word of God.


As it is written:

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path”



Every sin a man commits is against God. Let this be known to everyone.


Joseph in the bible is a clear and practical example:

“There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back anything from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?”



There is so much great wickedness, and unfaithfulness in the world today.

But one choose to be exempted.


Carnality is destructive in disguise.


To walk with God through His Words is a choice. And to submit to the devil is also a choice: nobody should blame anybody.


Apostle Paul asserted thus:

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”




Father, we know that for by strength shall no man prevail.

Please give us the grace to live above the works of the flesh, in the Mighty Name of Jesus. Amen.


Beloveth, remain blessed!
