INTRODUCTION:

ILL Sex

An 8-year-old girl went to her dad, who was working in the yard. She asked him, "Daddy, what is sex?"

The father was surprised that she would ask such a question, but decided that if she was old enough to ask the question, then she was old enough to get a straight answer. He proceeded to tell her all about the ’birds and the bees’. When he finished explaining, the little girl was looking at him with her mouth hanging open. The father asked her, "Why did you ask this question?"

The little girl replied, "Mom told me to tell you that dinner would be ready in just a couple of secs."

Well, this is further proof that….

1. The topic of sex is rather mysterious.

It is mysterious because over the centuries men have been trying to figure out women.

The opposite is true as well for women have been trying to figure out men.

You will forgive me of my prejudice, but I think the women got the easier job (I think we are rather easy to figure out).

Even though we don’t always do so well in understanding the opposite sex, we are to understand this important fact.

Sexuality is designed by God.

I mean (please pardon me for saying so) but I think sexuality is crazy.

I have often marveled at this, because who would have thought this up.

What we can do, though, is this…

2. We can state unequivocally that sexuality is intrinsically good (Genesis 1:27-28).

Note how the Genesis account describes this…

So God created man in his own image,

in the image of God he created him;

male and female he created them.

And God blessed them. And God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth."

We have been made in the image of God.

Man is made in the image of God.

Woman is made in the image of God.

Gender, somehow, someway, is in the image of God.

He has made us sexual.

And note this as well…

He has blessed it.

God designed it for our joy.

ILL Sex: Kessler 4 times

When Gerald Kessler’s cat had kittens, it brought the inevitable question from his six-year-old son: where do babies come from?

Seeing this as an opportunity to have a discussion with his son, the youngest of their four children, he plunged into an explanation of the how and why of birth from beginning to end. His son’s eyes got bigger as the information started to sink in.

Feeling reasonably confident that he had done a father’s duty well, he asked if he had any questions. Looking bewildered, the son asked, "Dad, did you and Mom do that?"
