  13. 13. The World we live in doesn ’ t really value sex “… they don’t see sex as sacred or even very important any more. That’s been lost. Sex has been commodified and drained of its deeper meaning.” Naomi Wolf
  14. 14. God loves sex and puts a great value on it “ The man said “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be call woman, for she was taken out of man.” 24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh .” Genesis 2:23-24
  15. 15. God loves sex and puts a great value on it 18 “…May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.   19 A loving doe, a graceful deer— may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be captivated by her love.” Proverbs 5 “ The man said “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be call woman, for she was taken out of man.” 24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh .” Genesis 2:23-24
  16. 16. God loves sex and puts a great value on it 18 “…May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.   19 A loving doe, a graceful deer— may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be captivated by her love.” Proverbs 5 “ Eat, O friends, and drink; drink your fill, O lovers.” Song of Solomon 5:1 “ The man said “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be call woman, for she was taken out of man.” 24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh .” Genesis 2:23-24
  17. 17. God loves sex and puts a great value on it “… the ultimate reason (not the only one) why we are sexual is to make God more deeply knowable…” J.Piper 2004 - Sex and the supremacy of Christ
  18. 18. God ’ s people are called to be radical about sex! 9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
  19. 19. God ’ s people are called to be radical about sex! 12 &quot;Everything is permissible for me&quot;—but not everything is beneficial. &quot;Everything is permissible for me&quot;—but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 &quot;Food for the stomach and the stomach for food&quot;—but God will destroy them both. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, &quot;The two will become one flesh.&quot; 17 But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit. 18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. 19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your body. 1 Corinthians 6:12-20
