“The will of God”. “Sex”. Two very popular topics. Two topics that are not often put together into one sentence. Yet, the Bible links the two together in one powerful verse in 1 Thessalonians 4:3: “For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality”.
In the Oasis Christian Community sermon “The Will of God“, Corey Fronk and Seth Evans explore God’s view of sex and sexuality in light of the will of God in 1 Thessalonians. Sex is presented as neither a dirty bad thing nor as the god that our culture tends to celebrate. Rather, lived out in accordance to God’s will in the Bible, sex is a beautiful, desirable, and good thing. With this in view, the sermon speaks of ways that we can learn to “control our own body in holiness and honor” (1 Thessalonians 4:4).
