#7 the one about sex

Do not Commit Adultery
[Exodus 20:14]

[Notes from our session]

God is for sex (Genesis 1:26-28 / 2:23-25)

God made our bodies, designed sex AND it was GOOD  [shame only came after sin spoilt everything (Genesis 3:7)]

God gave Adam and Eve a purpose, to fill the world, enjoy it and look after it. To do that they needed each other and also many others. Sex is the way children are made!

Sex is for marriage

Marriage is between one man and one woman (Genesis 1&2). Marriage is for life. [Matthew 19]

Sex is for marriage (Genesis 2:23-25).

So, sex is relational not just physical or recreational.

Marriage is God’s wise plan for us and for children.

Sex outside of marriage leads to guilt, emptiness, deep hurts, regrets and even health problems.

Safe sex = sex within marriage

Marriage is about the gospel (Ephesians 5:22-33)

Sex is not what life is all about. Nor is marriage. Marriage and sex point us to who God is and what He is like: faithful, forgiving, intimately with us and for us always through Jesus.
