Challenging believers in Jesus to think and act based on Bible truth.

Friday Feature 1.6.17 – Mercy, Sexuality, God, and Love

The first Friday Feature of the New Year will focus our hearts and minds on a tough topic: sexuality.

“An Odd Sort of Mercy”: Jen Hatmaker, Glennon Doyle Melton, and The End of the Affair

Please check out the article: the author brings an old story to bear on modern events and writers.

Then, let me share a few thoughts of my own:

1. Love.

Love’s common draw takes in almost everyone in some way. The objective standard of love, God’s love, sheds light on all our experiences of love. This should challenge you: how do you think about, or evaluate, the love you give or experience?

2. What we want from God.

The quote of the article: “Evangelical Christians have fallen too much into the habit of believing God exists to affirm our deepest desires, whether material or sexual.”

In the same vein, a verse grabbing my attention early here in 2017: And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. (Galatians 5:24)

Think. How do you define love, and how does that relate to sexuality?

Act. Memorize verses like Gal. 5:24 or others that will help pin your thinking to God’s truth rather than your own desires.
