Week 2-What’s a Guy’s Deal?
High Voltage – February 18, 2007 – Jim Clark
----------------------
The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and it 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 8:31-33
SOME STEROTYPICAL DIFFERENCES
Girls are RELATIONAL Guys are PHYSICAL

Girls are VERBAL Guys are VISUAL

Girls prefer ROMANCE Guys prefer ACTION

Girls like CHIVALRY Guys like BUDDIES

Girls tend to FEEL their emotions Guys tend to THINK their emotions

Girls like EXPERIENCES Guys want to be EXPERIENCED

A girl’s sex drive is SLOW A guy’s sex drive is FAST

HOW CAN THESE DIFFERENCES IMPACT A LIFE?
1. Appreciate God’s design and view yourself as an ORIGINAL MASTERPIECE
(When you realize you’re an original masterpiece…it’s easier to give honor to yourself)

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my moth’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Psalm 139:13-15
It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God. 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5

2. Understand the difference between male & female and HONOR ONE ANOTHER
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Romans 12:10
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 1 Corinthians 13:4-5

3. Make a commitment to honor God with YOUR BODY
Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! Do you not know that he who united himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will be become one flesh.” But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit. Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, who you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body. 1 Corinthians 6:15-20

The Bottom Line:
Knowing the differences in guys and girls can save you some pain.

------------------------------------
Questions for discussion:
1. Which of the differences between guys and girls seems the biggest? Why do you think that?
2. Which of these differences do have personal experience with?
3. Do you feel that knowing the differences will help you avoid some pain? Why or why not?

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

It was a really great night at High Voltage. I'm really enjoying this series. I almost can't wait until next week.
