Hot Summer Nights: Quenched. Refreshed by Intimacy
Southeast Christian Church
Published on 08/01/2010
It has been so hot around here this summer. Imagine it is a hot, muggy, 98 degree day and youre out working in the yard. It feels like youre baking in an oven. Just when you cannot take it any longer your spouse comes walking out with ice-cold water. The water refreshes you and youre ready to get back out there and keep going. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 7 that it is better to marry than to burn with sexual temptation. So it is the intimacy of marriage that quenches our thirst. This week we are going to look at another one of Davids sons, Solomon. He too was undone by sexual desire, but in Song of Solomon (Song of Songs) we have a flashback of his youthful desire for intimacy in marriage.
