Glorify God In Your Body
For a Christian the bottom line is this: “glorify God in your body” 1 Cor 6:20. Adultery and fornication do not glorify God. Instead they are a reproach to his name. For Christians it is inconsistent to be united with Christ in spirit, but then to be united with a harlot in flesh.

Uniting with a harlot breaks spiritual fellowship with Christ. Again, we cannot lose our salvation but our fellowship can be impaired by indulging the flesh.

Christians should see their spiritual intimacy with Christ as being vastly superior to any physical intimacy they might have with a harlot. “But he that is joined to the Lord is one spirit”.

Just as a man and wife “become one flesh”, those who are Christ’s “become one spirit” with him. It’s not a good bargain to trade in spiritual oneness with Christ for a harlot. It is much more excellent to be joined to Christ.
