Dear Young People,

God hates immorality. We know this, but let us go through a few scriptures in the Bible so that we will never commit this sin in our lives.

Before you read further, make sure that you have your Bible with you.

Fill in the blanks:

1 Cor 6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the ________________ _____ __________? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites.
Rom 1:24 Therefore God also ______________ ________ _____ to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,

Acts 15:28-29 For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things: that you abstain from things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you ___________ ________________ ___________ _________, you will do well. Farewell.

Lev 20:10 The man who commits adultery with another man’s wife, he who commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress, shall surely be __________ ______ ______________.

1 Cor 6:18-20 __________ sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the ________ ___________ who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Eph 5:3-5 But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it ________ ___________ _____ ___________ among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

Col 3:5-6 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the ____________ ____ ________is coming upon the sons of disobedience.

1 Thes 4:3-5 For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should _____________ from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know ___________.

These are not the only scriptures that show how much God hates sexual immorality and wants His children to live holy lives. As an additional exercise, try and find a few more such scriptures and note it down. Above all, write these scriptures upon the tablet of your heart so that you will not ever fall into such a sin.
