Last week, I preached from 1 Corinthians 7:1-9. I tried to encourage us to view sex, in the context of marriage, as an act of worship where spouses are able to serve one another and glorify God through the gift of sexual intimacy. If you missed the sermon, here is a link to watch online.
Also here is the video that was shown before the sermon.
Here is one way we were encouraged to fight lusting after others:
If you see another married person that you begin to be attracted to and lust after, if that person becomes a means of satisfying all your disgruntled thoughts regarding your spouse or present relationships, then don’t forget two things: 1. Your perception of them is skewed. You are blinded by your lust and you are overlooking that they are filled with faults too, and 2. You are forgetting that they are already one with another person. When someone sees me they must immediately see Dana. We are one. When I see Pastor Travis’ wife Julie I also should immediately think about Travis. They are inseparable. They are one in the same. May we remember the powerful union of marriage and the superior satisfaction that Christ is, compared to anything else we could crave.
This week we will continue our study of 1 Corinthians. Pastor Travis will be preaching through verses 10-24 of chapter 7. Join us as we deal with issues of contentment and “seek to find hope through pressing life circumstances that tend to grasp us and fling our hearts toward discontentment and despair.” -PT
