April 22, 2022 – The Boundaries of Marriage
Sermon: 1321 – Safe Sex
Pray Over This
“Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.”
God has set some definite boundaries for the physical act of marriage. And without these boundaries, a nation, a city, and a family cannot exist. Can you imagine what it would be like to play or watch a football game without any rules or boundaries? Imagine the fullback gets the ball, and he goes up through the stands with it. A lot of folks would get hurt.
God has given some boundaries not to harm us, but to help us and protect us. Inside these boundaries, sex is a wonderful gift of God. You’ll never improve on God’s plan. God’s plan is for a man and a woman in the bounds of holy matrimony, and only in the bounds of holy matrimony, to be one flesh. God’s plan in sex is to bring a man and a woman, in the sanctity of marital love, to a sense of oneness in which they become one flesh.
Make a list of boundaries God has set for His people. Write out some reasons the world might push against these, and then write the ways these are actually good boundaries set by God.
