Under Gods Command

Part 3

Romans 1:21-23 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.  Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

Romans: 1:24-25 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.  They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator who is forever praised.  Amen.   

Romans 1:26-27 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.  In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another.  Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. 

God’s plan for natural sexual relationships is his ideal for his  creation.  Unfortunately, sin distorts the natural use of God’s gifts.  Sin often means not only denying God, but also denying the way we are made.  When people say that any sex act is acceptable as long as nobody gets hurt they are fooling themselves.  In the long run (and often in the short run).  sin hurts people-individuals, families, whole societies.  Because sex is such a powerful and essential part of what it means to be human, it must be treated with great respect.  Sexual desires are of such importance that the Bible gives them special attention and counsels more carful restraint and self-control than with any other desire.  One of the clearest indicators of a society or person in rebellion against God is the refection of God’s guidelines for the use of sex.

Lets Bring it Home: Natural sex is not just between men and women.  Natural sex is between Husband and Wife.  If you’re not married and having sex, pray for self control.  I know it’s hard.  So make up your mind to either marry the person, or drop it likes it hot.  Nothing is worth burning in hell for the rest of your life.
