1 Corinthians 6:19-20 "Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body." 1. How have you heard this verse apply to life today? What could this verse mean? (2 pts.) I hear this verse repeated by religious people when they are justifying their refusal to drink, smoke, or partake in questionable things. When people accept their body to be a gift from God, they take care of it the best they can. 2. Read the Immediate Context of this verse. What is Paul addressing in this section (verses 12-20)? (2 pts.) Here Paul is addressing the Corinthians about practicing sexual abstinence. While references are made to food and other substances, the overwhelming theme of these verses is to maintain sexual purity, because that is how we can remain close to God. 3.
