18 Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin[a] a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. 19 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, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
You are a whole person and this of course includes our bodies, in other words we don’t just “have” a body we are a body. There is much that God has to say about why we are a body and here we see one of those reasons, our body is a sacred space for the Holy Spirit to dwell. We are a holistic offering to God; we belong to Him body, soul and spirit (Ps. Dale).
