Sermon Series: GOD AND HUMAN SEXUALITY – Sermon #6
“Is Your Bed Undefiled?”
I. The Reality Of Sexual Expression: Heb. 13:4a, “Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled”
A. Marriage is to be held in HONOR above all other human relationships (“Marriage is honorable among all”).
Marriage is between a man and a woman in union throughout their lifetime (Gen. 2:18).
God chose to make a woman for the man; she is the divine compliment for her man (Gen. 2:18).
God presented the woman to the man with the knowledge that both were sexual beings (Gen. 1:28; 9:1, 7).
The union between the husband and wife is to be permanent (Gen. 2:24; Matt. 19:6; Malachi 2:16).
B. Marriage is the only relationship where sexual expression is considered pure (v.4b, “and the bed undefiled”).
The Reality Of Sexual Deviation: Heb. 13:4b, “but fornicators (whoremongers) and adulterers, God will judge.”
