Today I want to give you a place to start your week. It’s Monday and in the wake of a great weekend and a workweek ahead, sometimes you just need a “kickstart” to get focused. So grab some coffee let’s start a great week together.
Today we continued our annual marriage series with our Kfirst community. We looked at human sexuality and how it impacts the Kingdom of God.
Listen to Kfirst Messages. (uploaded by the Monday following the service)
Watch on Kfirst’s Facebook. (recorded live on Sundays)
J.P. Dorsey is not only the director of Northpoint Bible College, but he is a friend of this congregation. He brought a tremendous word in our marriage series on sexuality called, “The Best Sex Ever.” It is here where he broke open the Word to help us understand the connection between what we experience in the bedroom has implications in how we live in the word. The Kingdom of God is seen in, and impacted, in healthy marital sexuality.
J.P.’s thoughts and scriptures yesterday:
- The best sex ever is missional in nature.
- Genesis 1:26-28; John 17:20-23
- The best sex ever is reconciling in nature.
- Revelation 7:9-10
- The best sex ever is sacramental in nature.
- 1 Corinthians 7:1-5; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
- The best sex ever is purifying in nature.
- Hosea 4:12-14
My challenge to you: Listen or watch the message while looking at the notes. If you’re like me, I’m gonna re-listen as to take in both the passion for healthy sexuality as well as the depth of teaching on the depth of what a vision for heathy sexuality should do to all of us.
As we’ve done for the past few weeks, let me give you a few questions to ask your spouse this week:
- How healthy is our sexuality?
- Is there anything that we can do to grow healthier sexually?
- Changing our view? Personal repentance? Reproaching our frequency?
- Which point from the message was the most encouraging? Challenging?
I had someone, a while ago, tell me that sexuality was for “young couples.” That breaks my heart to see something so beautiful relegated to an age or genre of people. When I see sexuality, I see it as a gift to ALL married couples. And, like any gift God gives, we were called to steward it and to grow it.
This week, humbly go over the questions. Celebrate your marital sexuality. Repent of any hurt. Rebuild the intimacy in your homes.
Love you all. See you this Sunday as we wrap up our series.
BTW: Here’s a song for your week
