The world’s plan for sex has created a culture of heartbreak, the objectification of women, the sexualization of our youth, broken marriages, pain and regret.
Let’s explore God’s plan:
Romance is to be enjoyed
Song of Solomon 1:2
Proper sexuality is not shameful
Spouses are to fulfill one another – this is not a suggestion!
1 Corinthians 7:3-5
Monogamy, the wife of your youth until when?
This verse is obviously speaking to us after the honeymoon, 10 yr anniversary, etc
Jesus raised the bar high, all the way to mental monogamy!
“Sex in your mind matters just as
much as sex in your bedroom”
Sexual sin is different than other sin
1 Corinthians 6:18
Sex isn’t a momentary act, but a union, a sacred and deeply emotional act
1 Corinthians 6:15-17
These relationships are more than just a snapshot, a moment. They are importantly integral parts of your life! Problems with snapshots:
A snapshot doesn’t tell the story, the past, the ups & downs, growth, real successes, storms, big wins, etc.
Snapshots cannot show the future! Jeremiah 29:11
