Our Pursuit As Image Bearers Is Purity

Big Truth:

Our Pursuit As Image Bearers Is Purity

Psalm 73:1; 119:9; Proverbs 22:11; 2 Corinthians 6:4-6; 1 Timothy 4:12

Bible Verse:

“But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him. Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. 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 Corinthians 6:17-20

Big Ideas:

  • Purity paves the way for intimacy with God.
  • We must fight to flee sexual sin.
  • We were bought with a price and are now free to serve God with a whole heart.

Bible Passage:

1 Corinthians 6:9-20




The Kneel Year is an exploration of what it means to worship God with our all (Luke 10:26-28). Worship is not something that is limited to a service once a week, but instead occurs every day, in all of life. We are unceasing worshipers. Worship never stops, it only changes directions. In order to worship God with all of our heart, soul, strength, and mind, we must embrace our identity as image bearers. It is out of that identity that we can begin to live for God’s glory in all of life (Colossians 3:17).
