Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 28 July 2023 TOPIC: Defile Not Your Body (II)


TOPIC: Defile Not Your Body (II) 

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalms 138, Psalms 139, Hebrews 3, Hebrews 4

FIRE SCRIPTURE: 2 Corinthians 6:15-20 (KJV)

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

MEMORY VERSE: “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” – Romans 12:1


The best way to worship is to become a living sacrifice and make your body His holy temple.


Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit




What are the things that defile the body? They range from filthy thoughts, filthy imaginations, filthy communication and every kind of immorality. These are the things done by those that are yet to accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. Should a child of God be involved in such practices? Unfortunately, some do at the detriment of their lives and salvation. You need to cry to God today if you are openly or secretly involved in these. God can still be gracious to you. But he that covers his sins shall not prosper.

All sexual pollution of different dimensions: masturbation, bestiality, homosexuality, lesbianism, prostitution at different levels and manners etc. defile the human body. These immoralities carry with them their accompanying demons to ensure that they keep their victims in bondage. How would you explain a child of God who keeps falling in and out of sexual sins, romancing sin with impunity? These are besetting sins, sins that eat slowly into its victim to steal, kill and destroy! What a disgrace to the Almighty! Jesus drove away the sellers and buyers in the Temple of God. Why? They had converted God’s Temple to a market place (Matthew 21:12-17). In the same vein, the devil organises a satanic shopping mall, using these evil practices as baits to tempt and get his victim hooked. The result is destruction of destinies, affliction of different kinds and possibly untimely death.

What of those who engage in drinking alcohol, smoking different kinds of things and deeply involved in doing drugs. All these acts will defile the body and ultimately destroy the soul! Have you thought of those who pretend to be holy but behind the scene are addicted to these vices? Secret sins! Some call it ” trending”. This is a serious matter! The devil is on an end time mission to harvest the souls of men, especially the young ones before they become too serious with God. Sadly, older ones are becoming masters in secret sins and destructive habits. Remember, once the Spirit of God departs, the individual is instantly disconnected from the divine source and life becomes miserable.

Joseph knew this secret of the devil. He didn’t wait to plead, negotiate or placate Mrs. Potiphar, He fled! Even the Bible counsels us, young and old, ministers and laity, to flee all sexual immorality! Nobody is too spiritual to become a victim. Staying too long in the place of pollution can cause eternal damage.

Do you desire to remain a vessel unto honour for the Lord? Then flee all filthiness of the body, soul and spirit. Seek the cleansing power of God by the blood of Jesus. Desire to feed regularly on the word of God so much that it dwells in you richly and is able to purify your life (Psalm 119:9). Refuse to give in to the devil. He is the tempter but Christ in you is the hope of glory. Pray for the infilling power of the Holy Spirit. As you walk in the Spirit you will not fulfil the lusts of the flesh.



Confess every thought or act of defilement. Repent and ask God for forgiveness, in the name of Jesus.

Blood of Jesus, set me free from slavery to unrighteousness. Let secret sins in my life expire and die, in the name of Jesus.

Holy Ghost fire, make my body too hot for agents of defilement, in the name of Jesus.


I receive power to hate sin with passion, in the name of Jesus.

Destructive habits in my life die, die, die, in the name of Jesus.

Power to remain pure and undefiled, come upon me now by fire, in the name of Jesus.

Lord Jesus, help me to remain in the way of righteousness all the days of my life, in the name of Jesus.
