SEX - Yep that's what this series is all about. We're already two lessons in, so here you go - Bringing Sexy Back and Big Sex are available for download.
A brief synopsis. For those of you who hadn't heard, God invented sex. And according to Genesis, all that God created is Good. Hence, sex is good. Within the right cicumstances, of course. Pastor David explains that the church should discuss sex and how it relates to our lives. He stressed that God wants us to have BIG sex, with our spouses. He explained that God intends for Sex to be a valued item in our life, and just like other valued items (cars, big screen TV, etc.) there are rules around sex. When we limit sex to the physical and just see partners as an assembly of body parts, we are missing the bigger picture. We have little sex. We need to understand that as humans, created in the very image of God, we are multi-faceted and engaging in an activity that connects us to another human being is a very big deal.
Pastor David also explains that on the continium of sexual regrets, most people are on the more regretful side. He shows that you don't have to live with these regrets. Jesus leaned towards the people who are in most need of a friend. He used the people who made the biggest mistakes to show great examples of forgiveness.
These lessons are quite humorous in spots and I recommend them for anyone who has been reading these Monday Mentions, but not yet checked out the service.
As a plus, I've been reading You: On a Diet, and they suggest regular healthy monogamous sex as a means of losing weight. Go figure! Have fun. :)
