Sermons about Sex
On Sunday, Jordan Ogden (The lead pastor of Antioch Ann Arbor) wrapped up our three-part series on Sex by giving practical teaching around the connection between God and sex. We have been created for intimate connection - to be "naked and unashamed" - and our sexual intimacy inside the covenant of marriage is one way God reveals to us that we are beautiful and beloved. Jordan defined intimacy as "deep mutual knowing for the purpose of caring involvement." Intimate friendship with God and other people is what we've been created for and our sexual connection inside of marriage is one way God has designed for us to connect with and understand His heart toward us!
This week Chris Otts kicked off our new series on Sex. Kris Vallotton of Bethel Church says, “The world perverts sex, religion tends to shame sex, but God celebrates sex.” For many, quite possibly most people, could easily say that their lens on how they view sex is not from the perspective that God is celebrating it. The result of this is that we get a counterfeit of what God intends for sex. Counterfeits aren’t real. They copy what is real but they lack the value of the real thing. So it begs the question, ‘Do we have a counterfeit understanding of sex?” Let’s open up our Bibles together to grab hold of God’s perspective on sex. After all it was His idea to begin with.

God blesses the church that stands out instead of fitting in.
Same sex attraction is a topic that is sometimes felt to be taboo in church. We were blessed to have Michelle Smith speak to us about her experiences with same sex attraction and the amazing way God worked in her life.
We live in a sex-saturated world. Yet we are called by God to fulfill God's purposes with our sexuality. As a result, we are faced with a great struggle to live lives that are pure before God. Yet we must fight the fight that God has called us to so that we can walk in holiness before him.
Our trials often present temptations. What is the difference b/t trial and temptation? It is difficult to determine how our trials and temptations may or may not be “from” God. If God tries us, how is it that he doesn’t tempt us?
