Morning Musing: 1 Corinthians 7:2 (one more time)

“But because sexual immorality is so common, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman should have sexual relations with her own husband.”‬‬ (CSB – Read the chapter)

This past Friday we started talking about sex. So far we have concluded two things. The first is that this is something we should be talking about. As followers of Jesus and given the state of our culture, we’ve got to be having a positive and productive conversation about how we should approach this touchy subject. The second thing was this: Sex is good and we should be enjoying it…but only in its proper context. It is a gift from God and like any other gift from God, if we use it as He intended, we will enjoy its rich fruits to their absolute fullest. The last question we asked was what we should be doing about this. Let’s talk about that now.

Our culture is talking about sex. A lot. We should be too. So, let’s do it.

Morning Musings: 2 Corinthians 6:14

“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers.  For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness?  Or what fellowship has light with darkness?”  (ESV – Read the chapter)

This is a tough verse.  It’s tough mostly because of its implications.  I don’t think Paul’s point here is that we need to cloister ourselves off from the world.  Rather, we should not attach ourselves to the world in such a way that we are depending on it for the things for which we should primarily depend on the Lord.
