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 # 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
