Body Honor

Shaped By A Savior ~ Body Honor Sermon Audio Here


1 Sam. 3:1-10/1 Cor. 6:12-20
When a young person enlists in the military, they swear an oath. They agree to live by a standard BEFORE they know what that means, and are held accountable to do so.

Our Response To Our Experience Shows Our Allegiance

When God Speaks; who listens?

1 Sam. 3:1-10 How does Samuel respond?

  • v1/4 God calls specifically; Eli didn’t hear
  • v5/7 God calls repeatedly; Eli didn’t catch on right away
  • v8/9 Eli realizes God is calling Samuel; helps boy respond appropriately
  • v10 God calls personally; Samuel connects because of Eli’s instruction

TRANSITION: even though used to help Samuel, Eli is rebuked by God for not controlling his sons’ inappropriate behavior

When our Bodies speak, who’s in control?
1 Cor. 6:12-20 How do we respond to our own flesh?

  • v12/13 Corinthians had idea that all natural urges are fair game;
    While the urges may be real, they do not need to be in control
  • v14/15 We are connected to Christ; live accordingly!
  • v17 “is one spirit”; more than just affinity
  • v18/20 don’t let your flesh override God’s spirit

v19 you can listen to the Holy Spirit in you *over* your own flesh
