The Gospel and Sexuality
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 6:9–6:20
HOME GROUP DISCUSSION
- The guiding principle for sexual morality in Corinth when Paul wrote 1 Corinthians was "desire" - if a person felt a desire, it was acceptable to try to satisfy it. How does that compare to the sexual morality of today?
- Kyle said that by nature people look for fullness and satisfaction in their lives; that they will fill their lives with something to try to find satisfaction. Does indulging in the pleasure of sexual immorality really satisfy people? What does the Bible tell us is the only thing that can truly satisfy a person? Why?
- If, through Christ, our bodies have become the temple of God, where His Spirit now dwells, what is the purpose of our lives? In view of the gospel, should pleasure or holiness be more important to us?
- How would you help a brother or sister caught in sexual immorality? What would you say to an unbeliever about sexual immorality?
