Reclaiming Purity

God has been putting people together in relationships since the beginning!
Adam and Eve – Genesis 2:22
Kids and parents – Psalm 127:3, Ephesians 6:1-4
Friends – 1 Thessalonians 5:11, Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
The Church – Hebrews 10:24-25


The woman at the well’s story in John 4:16-18

She had given up on the dream!

God’s Plan
1 Thessalonians 4:3-8
Matthew 5:28

Purity is not only about sex. Purity is about character and integrity. Instead of thinking “sexual purity” think “moral purity.”

Romans 1:32
approve – to think well of, assent to, feel gratified with
– they commend and applaud those who practice sin
– they take pleasure in these sins of others, perhaps patronizing them (as a customer would)

Let’s speak plainly

1. When culture is out of step with God’s plan, Christians should be uncomfortable.

2. So perhaps, if there is something I would not be OK with my spouse doing, I should not watch someone else’s spouse doing it.

3. Windows

4. The remote control

Sex is not this lone thing or goal all by and of itself.
Sex is inseparably part of a package that is God’s plan for us.
