The Limit of Sexuality (part 2)
Embracing the limit of sexuality means we follow and obey Jesus when our desires are strongest and the opposition is fiercest. Surrendering our sexuality to Jesus is one of the most prominent obstacles to following Jesus because we live in a sexualized culture. However, sex is not the greatest expression of love. Sacrificing your life so another may live is the greatest expression of love. The kind of love that Jesus tells us we ought to give is marked by self-denial, sacrifice, and service. It will be difficult for people who love sex as much as the rich man loved money to follow and obey Jesus. Rather than lower the bar and make it easy to follow and obey Jesus, we ought to help people rise to the challenge by walking with them.
