Do you not know that your bodies are the members of Christ? So should I take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Absolutely not!
Do you not know that anyone joined to a prostitute is one body with her? For it says, The two will become one flesh.
Don't you know that you are God's sanctuary and that the Spirit of God lives in you?
And what agreement does God's sanctuary have with idols? For we are the sanctuary of the living God, as God said: I will dwell among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be My people.
The whole building is being fitted together in Him and is growing into a holy sanctuary in the Lord,

you yourselves, as living stones, are being built into a spiritual house for a holy priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
Then the king of Israel answered, "Just as you say, my lord king: I am yours, along with all that I have."

They say, "Through our tongues we have power; our lips are our own-- who can be our master?"
Acknowledge that the LORD is God. He made us, and we are His-- His people, the sheep of His pasture.
For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself.
If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.
Christ died and came to life for this: that He might rule over both the dead and the living.
And He died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for the One who died for them and was raised.
He gave Himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for Himself a special people, eager to do good works.
