Preacher: Des Smith
‘Sacrifice is at the heart of the Christian life because sacrifice was at the heart of Jesus’ life. So if we’re going to grow as a church, we’ve got to expect that we will have to sacrifice too.’ – Des Smith
In this, fifth and last sermon on Song of Songs, Des Smith explains how this love song between one man and one woman, also points toward the gospel and what the implications of this are for all of us.
In this, third of five sermons, Des Smith shows how Song of Songs teaches us that sex was given by God to enhance marriage rather than marriage being ordained to control sex. Listen to this sermon to hear Des explain this important distinction from Song of Songs.
In this, second of five sermons, Des Smith shows how Song of Songs vividly endorses God’s positive view of sex within the context of faithful heterosexual marriage. He also explains how God is “pro-creation” – that everything God created is good if it is received with thankfulness.
Did Jesus teach Christians to ‘Hate the sin, love the sinner’? Is it written in the Bible?
