Sex / Love / God – An Evangelistic Talk

Talk Title: Can you find love in sex?talking-about-sex-with-your-kids

AUDIO

Marilyn Monroe: “The sex symbol becomes a thing, I hate being a thing. I’ve never liked sex myself. I don’t think I ever will. It seems just the opposite of love”

Actually Christians disagree. Christians say:

GK Chesterton: “Every man who knocks on the door of a brothel is looking for God.”

Sex and love belong together, profoundly.

Sex and God belong together, profoundly.

To understand sex we need to understand the Christian view of God, the universe and everything. Then we can see where sex fits…

Luke 3:21-22: Jesus enters our filth to bring us to His Family.

God’s Family (the Trinity) is the origin of gender.

The way into that Family (oneness with Jesus) is the origin of marriage.

Now we can understand the Christian sexual ethic. Gender reflects the difference-in-equality of God. Marriage reflects the saving love of Jesus.

In the Gospels Jesus affirms both of these foundational points in Matthew 19.

Therefore, according to Jesus, sex is God’s way of saying to another human being “I belong to you completely, permanently and exclusively.”  It’s the most romantic view of sex imaginable.

And – more profoundly – it’s a proclamation of the ultimate oneness available in Jesus and the ultimate love He brings us into.

That’s why GK Chesterton was right: everyone knocking on the door of the brothel is looking for God.

But don’t settle for the picture of intimacy and oneness – receive the reality.  Come to Jesus and know the truth of what sex points towards.

    Thank you for another message of eternal truth. God has allowed us to rejoin Him through Jesus, eternally. He did lower Himself in order to save us. His enmity placed upon the devil led to Jesus, who came to destroy his works. As John wrote long ago, “We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.”———“We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one. And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.”———“Little children, keep yourself from idols. Amen.” I have bee led out of the filth to follow the One who has fulfilled all righteousness.

    Thank you, brother.

    The first time He entered my filth I was frightened. I couldn’t handle His love. On my knees I wept, “Lord I am not worthy!”. But now I know He is in me permanently, He has not withdrawn from me! We belong!

    Thank you!

    I have never been married, but because we were molded and breathed into the image of our everlasting, glorious God without consciously knowing evil; it is wise that we, now, that we are renewing our Godly life again, ought to have the same view of sexuality that Adam and the woman had as described in Genesis 2:21-25. Instead, we naturally as when their eyes were opened and “they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden…the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God.” I would think sexuality of those born again from heaven would be just as worshipful as the Seraphim Isaiah describes and quotes as saying: “‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!'”This is a reflection of the One who created it for his highest flesh and blood creatures. We are fallen, but we should still meditate, I would think about this.
