Seeking God Through Sexual Purity

1 Thessalonians 4:3                 March 6, 2016            Link for audio/video/manuscript

God has called us to holiness. He has given us His Holy Spirit so we might pursue spiritual maturity in God, sexual purity in marriage, and relational purity with one another. There can never be intimacy between one human being and another human being unless there is real intimacy with God first. Our desire for physical, emotional, and spiritual intimacy is a reflection of our God-created purpose - but our distant fall in the Garden has shamefully poisoned those desires today. But God sent his son Jesus into the world to die in our place for our sin on a cross, so we might be forgiven and set free from the corruption of our desires.
