MEMORY VERSE: “Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body..” – 1 Corinthians 6:18 (KJV)

BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 Corinthians 6:13-20 (KJV) (Scroll down for RCCG Sunday School 18 February 2024 HYMN)‬

13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.

15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.

16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

INTRODUCTION: According to the Advanced English Dictionary, fornication is voluntary sexual intercourse between persons not married to each other or extramarital sex that wilfully and maliciously interferes with marriage relations. However, in the New Testament, “fornication” which comes from the Greek word porneia, includes adultery and incest, (and from which we get our English word pornography). Porneia comes from another Greek word that also includes indulging in any kind of unlawful lust, which would include homosexuality. Fornication is a grievous sin that attracts severe judgement from God (Romans 1:29, 32). The Bible admonishes believers to “flee fornication” (1 Corinthians 6:18).




The temptation to commit fornication may arise, but you do not have to fall for it (1 Corinthians 10:12-13) because of the attendant consequences – spiritually, morally, mentally, and health-wise (1 Corinthians 6:9, 18). The dangers of fornication include the following:

  1. It is the easiest way to contract Sexually Transmitted Diseases and can cut a life short (untimely death). A good example is Amnon who was killed by Absalom two years after he fornicated with Tamar. (2 Samuel 13:28-32).
  2. It brings guilt, regret, torment, and destroys destinies (Genesis 49:3-4).
  3. It severs one’s relationship with God (1 Corinthians 10:8; Colossians 3:5-6).
  4. God hates fornication because He designed the human body to be His temple where His Spirit will dwell and not for illegitimate sex (1 Corinthians 6:13b; Hebrews 13:4).
  5. Fornicators will not inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:9).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Students should mention other dangers of fornication


The primary antidote to the sin of fornication is to run away from it (1 Corinthians 6:18). Running away here means not having anything to do with it either in thoughts or the act itself (Matthew 5:28). Joseph set a good example of fleeing from fornication in Genesis 39:7-12. In addition, we need to constantly purge our minds from immoral thoughts and fix our hearts on pure things (Philippians 4:8). Refuse to read or watch anything immoral – sexually explicit/pornographic materials (Luke 11:34). Feed your mind on the word of God (Psalm 119:9). Take to your heels to avoid this destiny destroyer (1 Corinthians 10:8). See a counsellor if need be and ask God to help you (Proverbs 11:14).

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Students should discuss other practical ways to overcome fornication.

CONCLUSION: Fornication destroys destinies, flee!
