2 1So the heavens and the earth and everything in them[K] were completed. 2By the seventh[L] day God completed His work that He had done, and He rested[M] on the seventh day from all His work that He had done. 3God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, for on it He rested from His work of creation.[N]   Man and Woman in the Garden   4These are the records of the heavens and the earth, concerning their creation at the time[O] that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens. 5No shrub of the field had yet grown on the land,[P] and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for the Lord God had not made it rain on the land, and there was no man to work the ground. 6But water would come out of the ground and water the entire surface of the land. 7Then the Lord God formed the man out of the dust from the ground and breathed the breath of life into his nostrils, and the man became a living being. 8The Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there He placed the man He had formed. 9The Lord God caused to grow out of the ground every tree pleasing in appearance and good for food, including the tree of life in the middle of the garden, as well as the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 10A river went[Q] out from Eden to water the garden. From there it divided and became the source of four rivers.[R] 11The name of the first is Pishon, which flows through the entire land of Havilah,[S] where there is gold. 12Gold from that land is pure;[T] bdellium[U] and onyx[V] are also there. 13The name of the second river is Gihon, which flows through the entire land of Cush. 14The name of the third river is the Tigris, which runs east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates. 15The Lord God took the man and placed him in the garden of Eden to work it and watch over it. 16And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree of the garden, 17but you must not eat[W] from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for on the day you eat from it, you will certainly die.” 18Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper as his complement.” 19So the Lord God formed out of the ground every wild animal and every bird of the sky, and brought each to the man to see what he would call it. And whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name. 20The man gave names to all the livestock, to the birds of the sky, and to every wild animal; but for the man[X] no helper was found as his complement. 21So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to come over the man, and he slept. God took one of his ribs and closed the flesh at that place. 22Then the Lord God made the rib He had taken from the man into a woman and brought her to the man. 23And the man said:   This one, at last, is bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh; this one will be called “woman,” for she was taken from man.   24This is why a man leaves his father and mother and bonds with his wife, and they become one flesh. 25Both the man and his wife were naked, yet felt no shame.

Our generation is exposed to more sexual materials than other generations. The bible is the ultimate authority on sex because God designed it. Week1: Anything that consumes you more than God is idolatry. Epeethoomee- excessive desire for something good. Too much of something good is bad. Week2: Authority Boundaries-limits In our minds and in our hearts we are unable to enjoy things because of boundaries. But in reality the reason why we are able to enjoy our lives is because of boundaries. When it comes to sex and anything related to it, there are boundaries and authorities. Fire when it is controlled is beneficial like for cooking but when out of control is destructive. Sex is beautiful only done under the confines of marriage. Colossians 3:7 - put to death all sexual immorality and lust. Ephesians 4:17 Dont live as gentiles do who are ignorant and have hard hearts. 1. Permanence - marriage is not just a paper or a contract that you fulfill. - permanence is about a commit - it is acknowledging that God was the one who bound the two of you - what God has bound together let no man separate - our relationship with each other is not just by chance but by God's design - permanence is also about being faithful to each other "I was wrong. I'm sorry. Please forgive me." Pastor tears down a piece of paper with red and blue glued together but cannot be removed without hurting each other. 2. Pleasure - Meeting legitimate need in a legitimate way - LUST is meeting a legitimate need in an illegitimate way - Marriage is the highest form of relationship since it is exposes the best and worst in you "This ring is the sign of the covenant that we signed days ago. Since we have already made that covenant, you acknowledge that you are no longer on your own. But mine. 3. Procreation -

Part of the man's side is more accurate suggesting God took genetic material from man and modified it such that woman and man were closely 'related' but different, complementary and interdependent. 'For as woman came from man, so man is born of woman' 1 Corinthians 11:12

Your story  Brokenness, redemption,  revelation. You are not defined by the pain of your past you are defined by the greatness of your God!  As long as you are the main character of your story, you will always be disappointed. If God is the main character, your story it will be as great as God is. if you are ashamed of your story then you don't have a revelation that you have been renewed and redeemed. If you are bored or disappointed then you don't have a revelation of your redemption. If you judge other people's stories and by the pain of their past then you do not have a revelation of your redemption. He who has been forgiven much loves much. Your story brings glory to God. Your life story is never meant. To display you it is meant to display God. Every tony your brokenness is redeemed God is glorified. Stop asking God why and start letting it reveal God to others. You have to share your story. Paul is not defined nor ashamed by it. God owns my story and I will tell it whenever He asks me. There are people in your life because your story can change their story.
