"But immorality (sexual vice) and all impurity [of lustful, rich, wasteful living] or greediness must not even be named among you, as is fitting and proper among saints (God's consecrated people)…" (Ephesians 5:3, AMP).

Immoral behavior causes pain that can be hard to overcome. But God has called you out of darkness. He has set you apart as holy to be used greatly by Him. Don't give up your destiny! Chase after purity and He'll take you places you've never dreamed of.

"For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us" (Romans 8:18).

"Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are" (1 Corinthians 3:16-17).

Like a sanctuary in a church or place of worship, your heart is a sanctuary for Jesus. It is a place where He can speak to you. And like a gardener, you must maintain your sanctuary by committing to His ways. Don't allow trash to enter your temple by letting other duties crowd your time with God. Savor every moment with Him and He will show you how to simplify your life.

October 31
