INTRO

What was the high point of your week?

REVIEW

Song of Solomon 4:1-5:1

Key Points:

God’s design for sex is within marriage. The boundary makes it beautiful.

Intimacy in its purest form starts with the stimulation of the mind.

Before touching her body men need to touch her soul and communicate her preciousness.

Men and women are wired differently when it comes to sex.

Sex within marriage can grow over time with good communication and generosity.

Sexual intimacy within marriage is not just physical. It’s a form of spiritual intimacy and protection from temptation.

If you’re married, your spouse is your standard of beauty.

Pornography destroys your perception and definition of beauty.

When   there is no shame. God is smiling on them as they are enjoying the gift of intimacy.

We’ve all made mistakes in the area of relationships.  Remember the gospel! The same God who gave the boundaries for sex, bled for those who broke them.  The cross isn’t just a second chance, it’s a new beginning.

When you’ve been renewed in Christ God sees you as flawless.

APPLY

What was your greatest takeaway from the message on Sunday?

How is the vision of sex in God’s word different from the values that are communicated in the world?

Why did God create boundaries for sex? What is their purpose? What happens when you ignore or apply them?

What are some key ingredients to a healthy sex life within marriage?  How can singles prepare for that?

Jordan said “your spouse is your standard of beauty”.  What does that mean?  How might pornography destroy our perception of beauty? Why is that so damaging?

Read Song of Solomon 5:1

How do you react to the fact that God is not only approving of but actually smiling at and pleased by sex between this newly married couple?  

How does that redefine the way you think about sex and spirituality?

How does it make you feel to know that regardless of the mistakes you may have made, God has died to redeem you and make you whole? Can you freely receive his forgiveness?

Did the message convict you to make any changes in the way you view or live out sexuality?
