The Gospel & Sex (The Everyday Gospel #2)

For many people, there is a strong sexual desire that leads them to engage in sexual activities that traditional Judeo-Christian teaching says is wrong. But what does the Bible really say about sex? And does God actually care about how we use our bodies for sexual pleasure?

In this second message of The Everyday Gospel series, Pastor Erin Bird sensitively tackles the tough topic of sex, showing from a Biblical perspective why God has a right to tell humans what they should and should not do with their bodies. Because it turns out the gospel story of Jesus’ death on a cross even affects what happens between the sheets.

Pleasure & Jesus (& Jesus #6)

Oftentimes, when a person feels stressed or uncomfortable in life, he or she will seek out pleasure to bring some relief. But sometimes, the pleasure they seek keeps them from the life they truly want.

In this sixth part of the & Jesus sermon series, Pastor Erin Bird walks through Romans 13:11-14, which shows Jesus-followers that life on this earth is not the time to fill up with as much pleasure as one can get. Rather, it’s time for something far more meaningful and important.

Listen in as we look at the topic of “Pleasure & Jesus.”

ASK Lust Out (#Unexpected #5)

Sexual lust. To some in our culture, it’s no big deal.  They see lust as  completely  natural, and even something to be done openly.

But to Jesus, sexual lust negatively affects our relationship with God and with others. This is why the “meek and mild Jesus” talks rather graphically and violently about the issue of lust. But his starting words aren’t just to shock his listeners, rather they lead to newfound freedom, so rather than just lust after someone’s body, we can actually love them like Jesus loves them.
