Theme of the Week: Our Sexuality Matters to God
Bible Verse: “For a man’s ways are before the eyes of the Lord, and he ponders all his paths.” Proverbs 5:21
Scripture Reading: Proverbs 5:1-23
Sex. Many people don’t know what to do with that one-syllable word, yet we inevitably can’t stay neutral about it.
Some time ago, the CNN website featured a woman who lived a promiscuous lifestyle for many years . She’d had many illicit relationships and reflected on them at 40 years of age. She didn’t fully understand what God teaches about sexual purity. Yet, it was obvious from her words that one can’t violate God’s ways without consequences. She came to see that casual sex is “hollow” and “heartless.” Her experiment with casual sex failed. It didn’t bring her joy or meaning.
It’s often said that the Christian view is repressive, rigid, and joy-denying. But it is exactly the opposite. Stories like this testify to the truth that sexual relations bring joy within a committed relationship.
More than that, it testifies that everything God created has a purpose and a design behind it, and we enjoy the benefits forethought by God, the Creator, when we submit to that.
This week we will explore in the book of Proverbs how our sexuality matters to God. We will talk about:
- Why does our sexuality matter to God?
- The consequences of sexual folly.
- The strategies of sexual temptation.
- Where to find the love we long for.
