What’s the Big Deal with Sex?
Week 1: Distinguishing Truth From Lies
High Voltage – February 11, 2007 – Jim Clark
_______________________________________________________

(Jesus said) The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
To the Jews who had believed in him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32

SEX MESSAGES FROM THE WORLD’S WAY

∑ Sex is no BIG DEAL

∑ Sex is purely PHYSICAL

∑ God is DOWN on sex

∑ Everyone is DOING IT

∑ It’s impossible to be PURE


WHAT YOU DON’T HEAR FROM THE WORLD’S WAY

∑ Your sexual decisions will leave LIFE-LONG MEMORIES

∑ Your sexual decisions can have LIFE-LONG CONSEQUENCES

∑ The best sex lives are found in MARRIAGES WHO WAITED

THE CHALLENGE TO CARE ABOUT YOUR LIFE…

1. Investigate God’s plan for GREAT SEX
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10

2. Search for God’s WISDOM
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10

3. Experience God’s FORGIVENESS
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

4. Enjoy God’s HOPE
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

The Bottom Line: Sex is a big deal because it has big CONSEQUENCES.

--------------------------
Discussion questions for student/parent interaction:
1. Which of the lies (from the world) have you heard recently and in what context did you hear it?
2. Which of the truths surprised you the most? Why?
3. How do you plan over the next several weeks to investigate God's plan for sex?

--------------------------

It was a good night. It was a great night to start the series. We had several students come up and ask questions and check out some of the materials that were offered through the library. All in all, it was a good night!
