Trusting God on a Day by Day Basis

Sins Against Your Own Body
Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality, sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:18-20
Sex outside the marriage is a sin. It is a sin against your own body. Your body does not belong to you, but was bought for a price by God and belongs to him.
I sinned with God’s body outside the bonds of matrimony with a married man. That makes it sound more sinful. I had myself fooled all those years.
