When it comes to biblical directives regarding sex, we expect some finger wagging and lots of "don'ts." The commands against sexual immorality, warning about a lack of self control, and against doing wrong toward another are all there in Paul's letter to the Thessalonians. But those commands are sandwiched between two "s'mores" - that we are to live in such a way that more and more we please God and show love for one another. That puts those sexual commands into a positive framework. This Sunday, Feb 23 at 10 a.m., we continue reading Paul's letter (I Thess 4:1-12) as he deals with "other matters" - matters like our sexual conduct.
