Luke 7:36-50

In this series we have seen how sex, our sexes, and marriage are all part of God’s design to communicate his desire for relationship with us, but what if we know we’ve missed the mark? What if our sexuality has been tainted, abused, or even broken? “Does My Brokenness Matter?” – part 5 of 6 in our Biblical Sexuality Series - will begin to address these questions and set you on a path for wholeness in Christ.

How do I know I'm sexually broken?

2. We have all been sexually harmed by sin
3. We have all sinned sexually
1) Brokenness can lead us from Jesus
2) Brokenness can make us judges in front of Jesus
3) Brokenness can lead to intimacy with Jesus

Why does brokenness often remain unhealed? SHAME

1. Do you accept or reject the idea of being "sexually broken?" Why or why not?

2. What effects of sexual brokenness do you see in the church today? How does it make you feel?

How might the fact that everyone is sexually broken change the way we treat people who are going through divorce, having sex outside of marriage, etc.?

What would you like God to do in you in order for you to be more sexually whole? Why?
