Lord of My Desire

Lord of My Desire

Sep 30, 2018

Passage: Exodus 20:14

Preacher: Tim McConnell

Series: Lord

Category: Old Testament, Theology

Detail:

But there is not a hint of defeatism in Jesus. He doesn’t just throw His arms up and say, “Oh well.” No. Jesus makes a claim over our desires. 

This week's sermon

Is there any stronger cultural stance right now but that there are no limits to love? Love has become a god. Whatever our desires, they are part of our identity and must be respected and honored by all—says the world. God claims authority even over our desires. God created a great and beautiful gift of intimate physical activity and the fulfillment of passionate desire. This gift is for a man and a woman committed to one another in a covenant of marriage, reflecting God’s full and exclusive covenant with us and our full and exclusive belonging to Him. Whatever my desires, I must submit them to Jesus and trust Him to be the Lord of my deepest wants and needs.

About This Series: LORD

Our fall discipleship series focuses on the Ten Commandments. Not only what they teach us not to do, but what to do. Jesus is Savior and Lord. Once we know him as Savior, it’s time to begin to allow His lordship in every corner of our lives. I can easily recognize Jesus as “Lord” in some abstract way. He’s Lord of the universe. He’s Lord of all history. But it gets harder when I think about His lordship in my own life. Is He really my master when I’m thinking about my relationships with my family? Is Jesus my first consult and guide when I’m arranging my finances? So much of discipleship is simply about loving Jesus more—loving Jesus more than desires of the flesh, loving Jesus more than money, loving Jesus more than what my neighbor has. The Ten Commandments are a great measure of our hearts. Do we love Jesus more than these? Jesus is Lord.
