Well of Fornication
Scripture is clear that sexual immorality is a sin. Fornication is a trick that not only traps one but multiple people. Paul warns in 1 Corinthians 6:18, that fornication is a sin against the body.
Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin that person commits is outside the body, but the sexual immoral person sins against his own body. 1 Corinthians 6:18
As believers we cannot take sexual immorality lightly because it impacts you and multiple people. We do not want to be a stumbling block and cause others to turn from the Lord. Our body is a temple, and we must treat it as such. The world has blurred the lines on love and sexual relations outside of marriage and we must not define love through sexual relationships.
God’s Word tells us in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 the true definition of love:
Love is patient, love is kind, it is not jealous; love does not brag, it is not arrogant. It does not act disgracefully, it does not seek its own benefit; it is not provoked, does not keep an account of a wrong suffered, it does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; it keeps every confidence, it believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Your love for others is not shown through sexual acts. It is shown by living out the things above. If you are looking for love, look for kindness, patience, selflessness and truth. If you struggle with sexual immorality, you can become free, but you must seek the Lord. We must redefine love, but it will require a relationship with the Lord. I encourage you to seek the Lord for strength in your fleshly struggle.
