Let me say a parenthetical word to non-Christians. Don’t think that you can earn your way to heaven by living a pure life, for we have all sinned and fall short of what God demands of us. And don’t think if you have sinned a lot in this area, that there is no hope for you. No, if you have sinned greatly in this area, there is hope for you. Christ came to save sinners. Christ didn’t come to save good people. Christ came to free us from slavery to sexual sin. But we don’t clean ourselves up before we come to him. We aren’t forgiven because we are pure and righteous. No, Christ cleans us up by shedding his blood for us. We don’t stand before him, even as Christians, because we are such good people. We stand before him because we have been washed with the blood of the Lamb. But he gave his life for us, so that he can be the Lord of our lives. We are no longer our own masters. Our bodies no longer belong to ourselves. Our bodies belong to Jesus Christ.
