Relationship Matters: Sex Matters


Relationship Matters: Sex Matters

Nathan Droege

Our goal:  to build strong, healthy, lasting relationships - that please God and that bring fulfillment to our lives. 

Matthew 5:27-32 & Matthew 19:4-8

A) Sex Matters to God -

-Proverbs 5:1-22; 6:23-29; 6:32-33; 7:1-27; 9:13-18; Song of Solomon; I Corinth. 5 & 6; Galat. 5:19-21; Ephes. 5:1-14; Colossians 3:5-7; I Thess. 4:1-8; Heb. 13:4; Revelat. 3:20-22 

Luke 7:36-50 - a woman known to be a "sinner"

John 4:1-26 - a Samaritan woman

John 8:1-12 -  a woman caught in adultery

Jesus did not condemn sinners who came to Him in humility and repentance; rather He had mercy on them, forgave them, and released them!

Why does sex matter to God?

-sex is the most intimate expression possible in a relationship!

-sex is the deepest and strongest bond possible in a relationship!

-sex is the most powerful expression of a relationship!                                                                                            

Sex will serve in a relationship one of two ways:

1) strengthen and deepen the bond between two people

2) inhibit, hurt, and even destroy a relationship

B) How does God define sexual sin? - -Matthew 5:27-32

1) lust -

2) sexual immorality -

3) adultery -

How does lust or sexual immorality or adultery affect us? 

C) God's prescription for sex - Matthew 19:4-6

What is a prescription?

How important is a prescription?  -

 God's prescription for sex:  a "covenant agreement" between a man and a woman!

 1) a man shall leave his father and mother - most important, and exclusive relationship!

2) be joined to his wife - most permanent relationship on earth

3) become one flesh - the most intimate relationship!

God does want your life to be His business also.

God's desire is always "redemption" and restoration!!!

God wants to do something new in your life!
