The Trouble With Sex

If your sex life isn’t all you want it to be, or if you wonder if you’ll ever have a sex life at all, this message is for you.  God doesn’t want us to be disappointed with sex any more than we want to be disappointed with it.   And he’s thrilled to point us to answers to solve all of our troubles, even our troubles with sex.  Includes special musical guest, Kent Sanders.

Message Notes

Colossians 3:5-19

Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.   Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.

You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.   But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.  Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices  and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.  Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.   Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.  Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace.

Hebrews 13:4

Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.

Ephesians 5:25

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her…
