Sexuality, relationships and emotional-connections…who owns them anyway?!
Relationships? Emotional connections with others? Do we “make” all of these experiences for ourselves? Do WE set the agenda and do what we want? Many will shout out a loud and exuberant YES! But the God of the Bible says something else. Speaking of Jesus, Colossians 1:15-17 says radical things about all of the above: ALL things were created BY Him and FOR Him! WOW! By Jesus and for Jesus?! Jesus is God, and therefore Creator…and as Creator has designed relationships, sexuality (and therefore sexual expression) and our emotional lives to be experienced for Him and His purposes. These purposes are GOOD, beautiful, healing, restoring and amazing because Jesus is a good, beautiful, amazing Healer and Restorer. In the postings to come, we’ll delve into and discuss these thoughts from a variety of angles. We eagerly invite your thoughts and questions, your agreements and disagreements! Let’s consider together how the Creator has created us to live as human beings who are relational and sexual beings made in His image.
