God’s plan is to make you holy, and that entails first of all a clean cut with sexual immorality.
-1 Thessalonians 4:3 (PHILLIPS)
Thank You, Lord God, that Your will for us is to be set apart for pure and holy living. Help us to shrink from all sexual vices and shun all immorality. We welcome Your process of making us more like Christ Jesus, the Lion of Judah.
