BETTER TOGETHER—Passion Fire

  • Are great relationships possible?

Stay Pure

(Hebrews 13:4) Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.

(Ephesians 5:3) But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality…

(1 Thessalonians 4:3-5, 7) It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God…For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.

(Proverbs 5:8) Keep to a path far from her, do not go near the door of her house.

(1 Corinthians 6:18-20) Flee from sexual immorality…You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your body.

  • Passions need parameters.

(Galatians 5:24 NLT) Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there.

  • God doesn’t have a problem with the fact that you have a fire. He just wants you to be careful how you burn it.
