The Introduction - Part 1 to FUEL HS Song of Songs: My Beloved Series.
This week Pastor Tim Osborn begins our the series, "Body & Soul: The Significance of Sexuality According to Scripture." Tim will read from Genesis 2:24-25 and I Corinthians 6:12-20 as he gives his talk, "Jesus, whose idea was this?"
Now, this chapter goes to talk about basically giving up freedoms that we may have to love our brothers or sisters who don’t yet recognize their own freedom. In a sense laying down our lives for those who just don’t get it. That’s hard, really hard. That is, instead of assuming that we’re the ‘older brother’ or more mature Christian, let’s assume that we’re not and that we really don’t know the difference between an idol and the God who is worthy of our worship. Let’s examine what it’s like to worship the wrong things.
Sex in marriage is God's design for our sexuality. This message looks at how God has designed us body, soul and spirit for sexual fidelity in marriage, not sexual infidelity outside of marriage.
How To Recognize Truth, Because It's Right In Front Of You.
Revival is more than just paying some guy to lead 7 services at your church then leave.
In Colossians 3:5-11, Paul calls Christians to deal ruthlessly with sin by putting it death.
As we continue our study in the book of Colossians the apostle Paul has been correcting errors that had infiltrated the church. He has warned thus far let no one take you captive to vain philosophy or empty deceit; don’t let anyone seduce you with their traditions; and don’t get caught up in a legalistic mindset; certain aspects of Judaism were given as shadows to prepare for the coming of Christ, but once the substance of what all those diet codes, festivals, and observances were meant to teach has arrived why return to the shadows. Then to the notion of mystic revelation he says our contact with God is through His word, Jesus Christ, the revelation of God in bodily form; so don’t be misled by those who claim to see visions and to have interaction with angels. And to the idea of asceticism, there is nothing we can do; no punishment of our bodies, no hardship we can endure to make ourselves more righteous before God than what Christ has already accomplished for us. And he draws it to a conclusion in the first four verses of chapter 3. True spirituality is not found in the philosophies of men; in legalism; mysticism; or asceticism; but to be truly spiritual is to be Christ-like. And in v. 4 he says we are so secure in Christ that in the future when He returns we shall be revealed with Him. However, you can’t leave it at that because we don’t always know what it means to be Christ-like. So the apostle Paul paints for us a picture that looks a lot like the Last Supper. In vs. 1-4 you have Christ at the head and in v. 5ff you have 12 moral admonitions as to how we are to serve Him. This is what it means to be a Christian; a disciple of Christ. He will address marriage, family life, employee/employer relationships, the market place, and more. But notice how he begins and where he begins, with sexual immorality.
