To trivialize the sexual relationship (“crude joking”), or on the other hand to idolize it, is out of step with our identity as “saints.” As those called out of the human race (1:4–6) to bear God’s restored image (4:24), we can accept God’s gifts, including sexuality, with thanksgiving, and restore them to their proper use (Prov. 5:18, 19; 1 Tim. 4:1–5; Heb. 13:4).
