God, Love, Sex- Part 3 "Turn Up the Heat"


WEEK 3- HOW TO TURN THE HEAT UP

God wants us to keep the marriage bed pure & active.
KEEP IT CLEAN
Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom. Song 2:15
Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Hebrews 13:4 (NIV)
But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality… Ephesians 5:3


IN RELATIONSHIPS, WE GENERALLY JUDGE OTHERS BY
THEIR ACTIONS & OURSELVES BY OUR INTENTIONS.

3 WAYS THAT YOU CAN TURN UP THE HEAT IN YOUR MARRIAGE!

1) IF YOU THINK SOMETHING GOOD, SAY IT.
How beautiful your sandaled feet, O prince's daughter! Your graceful legs are like jewels, the work of a craftsman's hands. Your navel is a rounded goblet that never lacks blended wine. Your waist is a mound of wheat encircled by lilies. Your breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle. Songs 7:1-3

SPEAK WORDS OF AFFIRMATION, AFFECTION, AND ADMIRATION.

The tongue has the power of life and death… Proverbs 18:21

WHEN YOU DON’T TELL THEM SOMETHING GOOD, THEY GENERALLY ASSUME SOMETHING BAD.
Your head crowns you like Mount Carmel. Your hair is like royal tapestry; the king is held captive by its tresses. Song 7:5

'acar (aw-sar'); to yoke or hitch; to bind, to harness, a prisoner put in bonds. (in other words, I'm a prisoner of your love)

Your stature is like that of the palm, and your breasts like clusters of fruit. I said, ‘I will climb the palm tree; I will take hold of its fruit.’ Songs 7:7-8
I belong to my lover, and his desire is for me. Songs 7:10


2) IF I THINK SOMETHING SPECIAL, DO IT.

PURPOSEFUL TIME.

Come, my lover, let us go to the countryside, let us spend the night in the villages. Songs 7:11
Let us go early to the vineyards to see if the vines have budded…there I will give you my love. Songs 7:12

THOUGHTFUL ACTS.
The mandrakes send out their fragrance, and at our door is every delicacy, both new and old, that I have stored up for you, my lover. Songs 7:13

3) IF YOU WANT SOMETHING DIFFERENT, BE IT.
If only you were to me like a brother, who was nursed at my mother's breasts! Then, if I found you outside, I would kiss you, and no one would despise me... Songs 8:1

Change is not change until it’s Change. Stop talking about making changes & the fact that you are changing... simply demonstrate to your spouse with your ACTIONS that you are changing.

Freedom Life 2014 Vision Video from Freedom Life Christian Center on Vimeo . Dream Bigger.  Start Smaller.  Ignite God's Vision For Your Life!  @StevenFurtick The theme for year 3 of Decade of Destiny is,  "GREATER,"  based on the best-selling book from Steven Furtick.  The Bible says in John 14:12,  "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father (NLT)."    2012 marked the beginning of a 10 year vision for our church called,  "Decade Of Destiny."   Since that time, God has been gracious to our church as we have witnessed hundreds of people make decisions to follow Jesus, dozens more baptized and powerful ministry occur in environments geared toward children, youth, young adults, married couples and people from all walks of life.  This past year was an exciting year of INCREASE for Freedom Life.  We expanded the reach of our church by adding a

"Genesis Week" -an excerpt from my upcoming mini-book!

Here's an excerpt from one of the "Small Book, Big Difference" mini-books that I'm currently writing. It's called, "Genesis Week- Creating A Life Worth Living One Day At A Time" and will be out this summer or eventually.  ____________________________________________________________   “... God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life...”.   Psalm 51:7-15 (MSG) On July 4, 2012, hundreds of thousands of people eagerly gathered in San Diego, California, to enjoy an 18-minute fireworks show that was advertised as one of the "biggest in the nation."   People waited for hours for what was sure to be the best ever Big Bay Boom. Hundreds of thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours had been spent on planning and preparing for this epic event.  A few minutes before the anticipated 9 p.m. start time, the show began, unexpectedly. In one loud blast, all of the fireworks ignited simultaneously. Th
