 Always Be On Your Guard

The Greek word gregoreo, watch, be alert. He's writing to people who are asleep spiritually. He says, “Wake up; be alert.” According to most lexicons, the word has more to it than just being awake as opposed to being asleep. It has the idea of being really awake and being aware. That is a determining effort to be alert.

After all, God gave our bodies to us, and He wants us to take care of them and avoid anything that might bring them harm. Many of the laws that God gave to the ancient Israelites in the Old Testament were meant to help them stay healthy and avoid sickness. Jesus devoted much of His ministry to healing the sick and restoring them to health. When we give our lives to Christ, the Bible says, “You are not your own. … Therefore honor God with your bodies”
(1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

The Formation of God's People. One of the clear-cut signs that the kingdom of God has come to earth is the formation of the church, the new people of God ( 1 Cor 1:2 ; 2 Cor 1:1 ).

This group is identified by Paul, among other things, as the “saints”
1 Cor 1:2 ; 2 Cor 1:1 ). 

The doctrine that the body is for Christ decided another question, to which the depraved habits of the Corinthians gave rise. All fornication is forbidden. To us, with our present Christian habits of mind, it is a thing of course-to Pagans, new; but the doctrine exalts every subject.
