The New Rules for Love, Sex & Dating

Andy Stanley, North Point Community Church

 

Sermon 1: The Right Person Myth: When I meet the right person, everything will be all right.This way of thinking creates trouble in our dating lives and sets us up for trouble in marriage. In this message, Andy challenges us to ask ourselves Am I the person the person I'm looking for is looking for? And he previews God's list of behaviors that will lead to success in dating and marriage.

 

Sermon 2: Gentlemans Club: Are the Bible's teachings about women relevant? In this message, Andy explains that Jesus' teachings about honoring women were extremely counter-cultural in the first century. They remain so today. So Christian men especially need to transform their thinking. And there are two simple steps to start with. *Please note, this message is not appropriate for all ages. Parental guidance is suggested.

 

Sermon 3: Designer Sex: Culture convinces us - and sometimes we convince ourselves - that sex is only physical. But if that is true, why is the pain of sexual sin so deep? Because sex is not just physical. It was designed by God to be so much more. In this message, Andy addresses common myths about sex outside of marriage and has two specific challenges going forward. *Please note, this message is not appropriate for all ages. Parental guidance is suggested.

 

Sermon 4: If I Were You: You can say, "I do." But can you follow through? A promise - even a promise as big as a wedding vow - doesn't mean anything without preparation to back it up. In this message, Andy has a "to do" list that will prepare you to one day say "I do" and mean it.

A ONE OFF SERMON

If there is one area in your life that absolutely needs some guardrails, this is probably it. It's the area that is the most difficult to recover from. It's the most needed yet most resisted area of all. Fortunately, the Bible is pretty clear on how we should approach it: flee.

Fight

Craig Groeschel

 

Some battles are worth fighting for Author and pastor Craig Groeschel helps you uncover who you really are — a powerful man with the heart of a warrior. With God’s help, you’ll find strength to fight the battles you know you must win: the ones that determine the state of your heart, the quality of your marriage, and the spiritual health of those you love most. Craig examines the life of Samson — a strong man with glaring weaknesses. Like many men, Samson taunted his enemy and rationalized his sins. The good news is God’s grace is greater than your worst sin. By looking at Samson’s life, you’ll learn to defeat the demons that make strong men weak. You’ll tap into a strength you never knew was possible. You’ll become who God made you to be — a man who knows
