Getting Ready for Sunday Nov. 2nd at The Crossing

Prepare

Worship on a Sunday starts before Sunday morning. That’s true not just for the band and the pastor and tech crew but for all of us. When you prepare ahead of time, you are getting yourself in the right frame of mind and heart. It gives you a chance to read the Bible passage in advance, see the song list, and get yourself ready. You can see some of the rationale here.

Keith Simon this week continues our series in 1 Corinthians with a sermon entitled, “Sex and the Saved Body Part 2” from 1 Corinthians 6:9–11. The Scripture reads,

Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

Last week’s interview with Wes Hill and subsequent Q&A were the first step in us discussing homosexuality. We want to re-visit the topic this week to explain and expand on what Scripture says about our sexuality and what it looks like to live faithfully to Christ with this dimension of who we are. If you normally bring your kids to the service, you may want to think whether this service will be appropriate for them.
