This week Pastor Casey and Bryan continue their conversation on sexuality by focusing in on the one-flesh union of marriage. By looking to the Bible, we can see marriage as a covenant modeled after God's faithfulness to us, and this transforms how we think about the design for sexuality within this very unique relationship of marriage.

Holy Sexuality 4: Be Fruitful and Multiply

Holy Sexuality 4: Be Fruitful and Multiply

This week Bryan and I continue our series called Holy Sexuality: living as Creatures in God’s World. This lesson is all about the integral link between sex and procreation, about how God designed sexual intercourse to be the means by which we can participate with him in creating more image bearers. We’ll talk about this vital connection as well as how we, as Christian people, are to confess and live out this reality even in our fallen world. We know this is a touchy subject, one that can hold a lot of pain for many, especially women, but we hope that as you listen you can gain some more insight into how the Bible talks about this as well as the hope we have in Jesus.

This podcast takes our weekly lessons during our Bible study time, called Hour in the Word, and distills them down for you to enjoy while you’re eating your lunch, working out, talking a walk, driving to work, or whatever else you might do throughout the week when you want to be encouraged, challenged, and energized to live out God’s Word in your everyday life. We tackle tough topics from a Christian perspective, and we take the Bible seriously as God’s wisdom for us in every sphere of our lives.

 

This week Bryan and I continue our series called Holy Sexuality: living as Creatures in God’s World. This lesson is all about God’s design of us as male and female, and in it we dig deep into the Bible’s vision of the basic diversity and unity that is human beings as male and female. We’ll look at Genesis again and see how this design is linked to our role as God’s image bearers, and we’ll narrow in on Jesus’ own body to see God affirming and redeeming this facet of human reality. Our desire is that as you listen you find hope that, even as we are broken in our maleness and femaleness, the life and body of Jesus provides hope for that part of us as well.

Welcome to the Hour in the Word Podcast, a ministry of Village church of Lincolnshire. I'm Pastor Casey, your host. 

This week Bryan and I continue our series called Holy Sexuality: living as Creatures in God’s World. This lesson is all about our bodies, and what it means that God created us as creatures with both body and soul. It’s often thought of as a Christian thing to value the soul over the body, the “spiritual” over the physical, but in Scripture, human beings are always seen as embodied persons, that is, creatures very much linked to the physical and designed to live as body and soul. Today we’ll dig into how Genesis 1 and 2 reveal our bodily existence, as well as how Jesus’ incarnation, life, death, and resurrection give us new hope for both our bodies in general, and sexuality in particular.  

To fill you in, this podcast is a recording of a live lesson at Village Church on Sunday morning. Because of this, at points you’ll hear Bryan and I respond to people in the audience, but we’ve cut their responses for their privacy. If you ever have questions or responses and really want to get stuck into the conversation, join us at 9am at Village Church of Lincolnshire in the Great Room. Otherwise, you can always find my contact info at evcl.org. That’s evcl.org. Send me an email; I’d love to talk to you more.

Holy Sexuality 1: Why Sexuality? Why Now?

Holy Sexuality 1: Why Sexuality? Why Now?

October 5, 2021

Welcome to the Hour in the Word Podcast, a ministry of Village church of Lincolnshire.

I’m Casey Dwyer, one of the pastors at Village Church, and I’m thrilled to bring you this new podcast we’re calling the Hour in the Word Podcast. This podcast takes our weekly lessons during our Bible study time, calledHour in the Word, and distills them down for you to enjoy while you’re eating your lunch, working out, talking a walk, driving to work, or whatever else you might do throughout the week when you want to be encouraged, challenged, and energized to live out God’s Word in your everyday life. We tackle tough topics from a Christian perspective, and we take the Bible seriously as God’s wisdom for us in every sphere of our lives.

To start us off we’ve got for you today the first lesson in our new series called Holy Sexuality: living as Creatures in God’s World. I’m so excited for you to hear this engaging conversation between myself and Bryan Just, one of our pastor/elders at Village Church, a great friend of mine. Bryan and I are bringing you this series because we want you to catch a glimpse of the exciting, exhilarating truth in the Bible that sexuality is sacred, that it’s a holy thing. Often times Christians are thought of as prudes and hypocrites when it comes to sex, but when we look at the Bible we see that God’s design and promise for sexuality is more intricate, holy, and spectacular than we can imagine. Today we start off by talking about why we need to talk about this important part of life, and how our perspective as followers of Jesus differs from those around us about sex and sexual matters.

To fill you in, this podcast is a recording of a live lesson at Village Church on Sunday morning. Because of this, at points you’ll hear Bryan and I respond to people in the audience, but we’ve cut their responses for their privacy.
