WARNING - MATURE CONTENT
I wanted to give you a heads up about our text this Sunday - it has some mature content that may be difficult for younger ears to hear and understand. There won't be anything graphic or explicit, but Sunday's text is going to challenge us in the area of sexuality. Here are the verses we are going to cover in Colossians 3:5-7:
5 So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don't be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. 6 Because of these sins, the anger of God is coming. 7 You used to do these things when your life was still part of this world.
We won't shy away from tough passages that confront current cultural norms, and when the Word of God runs contrary to popular opinion or practice, we will remain faithful to the Scriptures. This week's message will be something I think every middle and high schooler should hear, and I would even encourage my almost 10-year-old son to listen, but younger than that might be a little too much. This advance notice is simply to allow you to make the decision you feel is best for the younger ones in your family this Sunday. Remember, we have a stellar children's area with age-appropriate activities and incredible volunteers ready to show your kids the love of Jesus every Sunday.
See you Sunday- Bradley
