Sex (Part 2) God’s gift, God’s context

November 2, 2009 0 comments

God has given us this gift of sex to enjoy in the proper context. A love relationship between a husband and a wife. The problem is our society tells us we can have this gift out of God’s context.

When we take this gift out of context it looks like the real thing, but the results are not the same. The best case scenario is we have a mess, the worst case scenario is serious destruction.

It is like a fire. A fire in the proper context is a beautiful thing. If we have a fire in the fireplace at our house it can be very enjoyable. If we take that same fire out of the fireplace and put it in the middle of our living room floor, it looks the same at first. It seems great, at first. However, when it is finished we have a mess, or more likely destruction.

We have some incredibly powerful things in this life to enjoy in their proper context. When we take God’s gifts out of context, and misuse them they can create incredible damage.

Sexual sin has created some tremendous damage in peoples lives. Just think what the damage can be apart from broken marriages, and disease and all of the emotional scars and baggage at the very least: When we fail to confess we are then trapped in a life of secrecy. Everything we do filters through this secret we have. We are trapped in a prison of secrecy. When we confess there is freedom. If you have sinned against your spouse, future spouse, your Savior, will you confess? If not why not? Are you afraid? Afraid of how they may respond?

1 John 1:9

9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

If you are trapped, it is time to be free. It does not matter what you have done, where you have been. God loves you and will forgive your sin. Will you confess your sin to Him right now?
