Pure Sex: Keeping It Sacred

Title:  Before and After You Say “I Do”: Pure Sex: Protecting the Sacredness of Sex

Text:
“Honor marriage, and guard the sacredness of sexual intimacy between wife and husband. God draws a firm line against casual and illicit sex.”  ~ Heb. 13:4, The Message

1.  Sex is Good
2.  We guard the Sacred as we:
  • Protect the Boundaries

Exodus 20:14, Leviticus 18, I Corinthians 6: 9-10, I Thess 4:3b-5

  • Focus on Oneness

John 17:20-23

  • Keep it Incarnate
  • Respect the Masculine and the Feminine
  • Discipline is Key
          I Thess 4:3b-5, compare Galatians 5:19 and 5:23
3.  Final thoughts…
  • There are no “Spiritual Rambos”
  • Remember Grace
              Matthew 1:1-17, John 4, John 8:1-11, Isaiah 59:1, Matthew 11:28
