Sex and Marriage
Passage: 1 Corinthians 7:1–7:6
“Sex and Marriage”
1 Corinthians 7:1-6
Big Picture: Having sex regularly with our Christian spouse – and thus, relieving the pressure of sexual temptation - is part of the way Christians flee sexual immorality and glorify God with their bodies.
Point # 1 Because of sexual temptation, married couples must be having regular sexual relations with their spouse (1-2; 5).
Point # 2 Within marriage, sexual privileges and responsibilities are reciprocal (3-4).
· Sexual relations are a “due” within marriage because the body is not one’s own free possession but belongs to one’s spouse.
Point # 3 Within marriage, neither partner is to deprive the other of regular sexual relations except under three conditions (5-6):
· by mutual consent
· for the purpose of devoting themselves to prayer
· only temporarily
