Heaven In Your Home

May 15, 2023

Sex is meant to point to something bigger, reflecting the goodness of a purposeful Creator. Our God is an intentional designer and His creation, including sex and sexuality, was designed to point to greater things. For centuries the church has disregarded the importance and meaning of the body and sex, yet this conversation helps us see there is a different way to see and celebrate the story of God.

Topics discussed include:

  • The union of man and woman point to a greater union with God, sex as a signpost.

  • The beauty of God’s story written on our bodies.

  • Moving from a rule based mindset to an image bearing mindset.

  • Duty language vs. beauty language.

  • Higher vision for singleness and marriage.

  • Holy masculinity and image bearing role of men.
