What’s the BIG Deal with Sex?
Part 3- What a Girl Wants
High Voltage – February 28, 2007 – Jim Clark
“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 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

1. We are DESIGNED to be in a relationship with one another
The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Genesis 2:18
2. We are designed with DIFFERENCES
Top 5 Needs For Married Men And Women
M: Sex ‡ W: Affection
M: Recreation ‡ W: Conversation
M: Attractiveness of Spouse ‡ W: Financial Support
M: Domestic Support ‡ W: Honesty and Openness
M: Admiration and Respect ‡ W: Family Commitment
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27

Now he had to go through Samaria. So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour. When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” John 4:4-7
1. Jesus shows RESPECT
If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” John 4:10.
The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.” John 4:15
He told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.” “I have no husband.” She replied. Jesus said to her, “You are right when you say you have no husband. The fact is, you have had five husbands and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.” John 4:16,18
2. Jesus wants to KNOW her
Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet. I know that the Messiah (called Christ) is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.” Then Jesus declared, “I who speak to you am he.” Just then his disciples returned and were surprised to find him talking with a woman. But no one asked, “What do you want?” or “Why were you talking to her?” Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ?” John 4:19, 25-29.
3. Jesus totally ACCEPTS

WORLD’S WAY (LIES) GOD’S WAY (TRUTH)
How you LOOK = how you are accepted. You are ACCEPTED as you are

How you PERFORM = how you are accepted. You are KNOWN

How you FAKE LIFE = how you are accepted. You are RESPECTED
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians 3:12
O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:1, 14
Show proper respect to everyone: Lord the brotherhood of believers; fear God. 1 Peter 2:17

The Bottom Line: Many of the problems that happen between guys and girls come from not taking time to understand each other.

---------------------------------------
Discussion Questions:
1. How does it feel when someone really, really knows you and respects you?
2. Do you feel like your relationships respect you, know you and accept you for who you are or do you feel like they pressure you to be someone you're not? Why or why not?
3. What do you need to do in your life, what decisions do you need to make, in order to be a "10" Christian and attract "10" Christians?


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

Overall, it was a fairly decent night. Attandence was down a bit. But the topic was great. And I'm really excited for those who made the trip out.
