“And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality.” Col. 3:23-25
“Flee sexual immorality.” 1 Cor. 6:18
I was crouched down on the pavement to bend over my sweet paralyzed dogs Mr. Simeon and Miss Mercy in their wheelchairs at a street corner waiting for the light to turn so we could cross and head back to the blessed little apartment the Lord has provided for my season loving and serving Him in New York City when I cocked my head to the side and from my bent down position noticed the huge and bold and emphatic advertisement perched prominently on the front of a massive city bus for all to see. The advertisement was proudly publicizing a sex museum. Yes, you read that right. A SEX MUSEUM.
The Lord created humanity to love, worship, honor, serve, adore, enjoy, experience, praise, serve, obey, and glorify Him forever, and He created sex for one male husband and his female wife engaged in a loving marriage dedicated to Him. Does a museum glorifying sex glorify God? Does a museum focusing on sex as anything but its intended purpose according to God’s Word bring honor to the Lord? Anything we have done, or are doing, in the way of sexual activities, that does not fall in line with the Bible and does not bring God glory is sin and needs to be confessed as sin and turned away from in repentance with genuine sorrow with a turning to God and a commitment to Him and His ways through faith in Christ as Lord to include His ways as far as marriage between male husband and female wife and sex are concerned.
A museum draws attention to its subject matter to bring to light history, education, entertainment, humor, tragedy, just about anything and everything, in the context of humanity, society, culture, and this world. The fact a museum has been created to bring attention to sex is a sign of the times, isn’t it, a sign that with all things – sex included – we need individually and as humankind as a whole to turn away from self and one another and our lust for self-satisfaction and earthly pleasure and turn to the Lord so that all we do is done in the context of bringing love, honor, praise, and glory with pure hearts and pure lives to His holy blessed everlasting awesome and eternally precious name, hallelujah!
Examine yourself in the area of sex and in all areas of your life. If you stood before the Lord today and gave an account of your life, whether it be regarding sex or anything at all, would you see the Lord smiling upon you with joy, love, and pride, because you are bringing Him pleasure and honor? If this is not the case, let today be the day, and this hour the hour, that you give yourself utterly to Christ Jesus who is Lord forevermore, that in all things, day by day, breath by very breath He gives you, you bring the Lord most high honor and praise, forever and ever, amen!
