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.

Life's Healing Choices, Part 6- Repairing Relationships

Week 6: REPAIRING RELATIONSHIPS- THE RELATIONSHIP CHOICE:
I evaluate all my relationships, offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me, and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

“Happy are those who are merciful to others... Happy are those who work for peace.” Matthew 5:7,9 (TEV)

1. I can FORGIVE others because God has FORGIVEN me.

Lessons from a Hoarder (Luke 12:13-21)
13Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." 14He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" 15Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot."
