Relationship Status

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
Genesis 2:25

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
Proverbs 5:18-19

Jesus raised the bar high, all the way to mental monogamy!
Matthew 5:28

“Sex in your mind matters just as
much as sex in your bedroom”
Dave Willis

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
