Weird: Sexuality – Day 4 of 5
Sexuality is not something often openly discussed in our culture today. Instead, we have this mindset of, “Who am I to judge others, and who are they to judge me?” While it may seem ‘Weird’, Jesus has invited us to share our struggles with one another.
Hebrews 3:13 says, “13 You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God.”
Similarly, 1 John 1:19 reads, “9 But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.
Read: 1 Corinthians 6:12-7:5
Questions to consider:
- This passage was written nearly 2,000 years ago. How are people’s thoughts about sex today similar? How are they different?
- What is God inviting you to do as a result of this passage (see also Hebrews 3:13 and 1 John 1:19)?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that Your Word regarding sexuality is a tremendous challenge. I see the pervasiveness of sexual sin in our culture, and sometimes it’s easy for me to get caught up in the temporary pleasures of sexual desire. Still, I recognize that it does lead to brokenness within our families, and myself as an individual. Therefore, I want to take the opportunity today to confess my sin of _____________________. I also pray that others will help keep me accountable in this area of my life, even when it may be hard for me to listen to what it is they have to say. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
