Purity in an Impure World

September 1, 2013 Speaker: Fred Greco Series: Post Christian World

Topic: AM Service Passage: 1 Corinthians 6:12–6:20

One of the most obvious things about the changing culture of our world is an increased abandonment of purity in favor of all kinds of sexual immorality. The apostle Paul speaks to this in 1 Corinthians, but not in a way we might expect. Instead of railing against the sinner "out there," Paul warns the Church that we have a duty to follow God's Law, and show the work of God's grace in our lives - by the change and difference the work of Christ has made.

I. The World’s Lies
A. Don’t Hold Me Back
B. It’s Only Natural
C. Everybody’s Doing It

II. The Father’s Truth
A. Love, Not License
B. Real Reality
C. Joined to Christ

III. Acting on Truth
A. Be Counter Cultural
B. Remember Who You Are
C. Glorify the Lord

Questions for consideration: (1) Why is it important for the progress of the gospel for you to live a life of purity? (2) In what ways are you challenged to live a purer life? Is any of those ways “acceptable” in the sight of society? The modern Church? Your own companions? (3) How can a greater knowledge of God’s grace and salvation help you in your struggles with purity?
