Daily Devotional: Flee!!!

March 19, 2019 Save Article

BIBLE MEDITATION:

Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is outside the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 1 Corinthians 6:18

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

The sin of immorality is not a sin we are told to fight in the Bible—it’s a sin we’re told to flee! (See 2 Timothy 2:22). God tells us to get out of a compromising situation. Read what Joseph did when he was approached by Potiphar’s wife in Genesis 39:7-18. He fled!

If there is a person who works in your office and that person is flirting with you, knowing you’re married, it would be better for you to quit your job than to stay in that office. If they’re married and you’re single—ditto!

“But—my job!”

But—your purity!

ACTION POINT:

Perhaps something else is going on—maybe you’re fighting a pornography addiction, and you’re alone in your motel room with free X-rated movies. Do you sneak a peek? Don’t try to test how far you can come to the edge without falling over. See how far you can stay away!
