Hebrews 13:4 “Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.” (ESV)
I remember the conversation well, we were both uncomfortable with the topic. It was the “birds and bees” conversation with my father, where I learned about sex. The sad part was that I had learned far earlier from the “street”. Today’s verse speaks about the marriage bed, how it is to be undefiled! Too many men have learned about sex from the wrong teachers. It’s not a subject that was talked about around the dinner table or even from the pulpit at our churches, so our view of things was not a godly one. Because of the lack of discussions about sex, we men have beliefs that aren’t godly in nature. We can go on believing the what worlds says about sexuality or we can go to His Word and find out what God says about it. Important information about sex, our beliefs about it, and what God’s Word says about it can be found in the “Christians and Sexuality” lesson series at men.ag.org. I pray that through the study you will have a better understanding about sex, and you’ll find the courage to talk to your children (current and future) about God’s view of sexuality.
Why is sex so hard to talk about?
Where did you learn about sexuality?
How do we become men who are able to address sexuality with the next generation of men?
Get together with a small group of men and go over the lesson “Christians and Sexuality,” found at men.ag.org.
