Just a Kiss – Week 5


5 – Thinking About Your Future

TWO WAYS TO LOOK AT SEX:

  1. Small Picture = NOW
  2. Big Picture = FUTURE

AREAS IN LIFE TO LOOK AT WHEN THINKING ABOUT THESE OPPOSING VIEWS:

SPIRITUAL

“Only fools say in their hearts, ‘There is no God.’” (Psalm 14:1)

“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God.  Everything is naked and exposed before His eyes, and He is the one to whom we are accountable.” (Hebrews 4:13)

“They knew God, but they wouldn’t worship Him as God or even give Him thanks.  They began to think of foolish ideas of what God was like.  As a result, their minds became dark and confused, claiming to be wise [as so many people in here are doing], they instead became utter fools.  They traded the truth about God for a lie.  They worshipped and served things God created instead of the creator Himself who is worthy of eternal praise.  That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires.  [Meaning He gave them the choice.  They chose to turn their back on God.]  Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and started indulging in sex with each other.  And the men, instead of having normal sexual relationships with women, burned with lust for each other.  Men did shameful things with men.  As a result of this, they suffered within themselves.” (Romans 1:21-23, 25-27)

PHYSICAL

“God’s will is for you to be holy.  So stay away from sexual sin.  That is God’s will for your life.  Then each of you will control his own body and live in holiness and honor, not in lustful passions like the pagans, who do not know God and His ways.” (1 Thessalonians 4:3-5)

SOCIAL

“Love each other with genuine affection.  And take delight in honoring each other.” (Romans 12)

ACTION STEPS:

  • Ask the right questions
  • Establish good boundaries
  • Find some accountability
