Matthew 5:27-32; Gen. 1:1,27-28; 2:18, 23-25; Deut. 6:4-5; Eph. 5:21-33 — Through this passage the Holy Spirit led us to do a mini-series on sexuality within our main series, Living the Kingdom Life. This mini-series is called Radical Purity for Sexual Discipleship. Who is discipling our next generation in the area of their sexuality? Who is discipling us sexually? What is God’s design for sexuality? We are called to follow, obey, and exalt Jesus as Lord, Creator, and Savior of every aspect of our lives, including our sexuality and marriage. The Church must be a safe place where we can talk about and help one another regarding our sexual questions, struggles, hurt, pain, and brokenness. Radical purity is necessary for Kingdom living. This and the next 3 sermons explore these questions. This mini-series is based on and makes extensive use of the following resources: Juli Slattery, Rethinking Sexuality: God’s Design and Why It Matters; Matt Chandler, The Mingling of Souls: God’s Design for Love, Marriage, Sex & Redemption; David Platt, Counter Culture: Following Christ in an Anti-Christian Age.
This is sermon #2, God Designed Our Sexuality, in the mini-series, Radical Purity for Sexual Discipleship. This is part of our larger series, Living the Kingdom Life, based on the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5-7.
