Making reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ

River Reach News 6/1

Dear River Reach Family,

For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality; 4 that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, 5 not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God.” 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5

Our society is awash in confusion in one of the most basic areas of life.  People are struggling to know out how to live in their bodies!  Too many people today are confused with their gender or the gender of other people.  Basic lusts of the flesh rule in the lives of most people.  Is there any way to control this body that we call home?  Thank God for the clarity of His Word!  The relevance of God’s Word never ceases to amaze me!  What sin and society confuse, God’s Word clarifies.  Last week God’s Word taught us that all forms of sexual immorality are sin and must be avoided (1 Thessalonians 4:3).  This week God’s Word will teach us how to live in these bodies in a way that honors the Lord.
