It is God’s willy that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality;z that each of you should learn to control your own bodya a in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lustb like the pagans,c who do not know God;d and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister.b e The Lord will punishf all those who commit such sins,g as we told you and warned you before. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.h Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit.i
