So You Wanna Do “IT”

Five Sexual Lies From the World

Lie # 1 Sex is no BIG DEAL

Lie # 2 Sex is purely PHYSICAL

Lie # 3 God is DOWN on sex

Lie # 4 Everyone is DOING IT

Lie # 5 It’s impossible to be PURE

Three Truths About the Creator of Sex

Truth # 1 God isn’t into RULES, He’s into LIFE

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. - John 10:10

Truth # 2 God is more concerned about your HEART than your ACTIONS

Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also. Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.

- Matthew 23:26, 28

Truth # 3 God offers you WISDOM, FORGIVENESS, and HOPE

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. - James 1:5

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. - I John 1:9

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.. - Romans 15:13

Three Actions for You to Consider

Action # 1 Begin by EXPERIENCING God’s love

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. - Romans 5:8

Action # 2 Learn to EXPRESS TRUE love

Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma. But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; - Ephesians 5:1-3

Action # 3 Pursue a lifestyle that HONORS and VALUE obedience

So Samuel said, “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord, Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice ... - I Samuel 15:22

One Last Thought

Understand that your sexual decisions will leave LIFE-LONG MEMORIES and SCARS

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.. - Galatians 6:7-8
