Secret #4 - Creating a Healthy Sexual Culture in Your Church

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want To Miss:

  • Your church is sexually broken. That not only refers to our sin and sinfulness related to sexual activity, it encompasses any and every self-centered thought, feeling or behavior. If you want to create a sexually healthy culture in your church, prioritize healthy relationships and don’t get hung up on sexual activity (but leave some room to talk about that, too!). 
  • Don't reduce sexuality to sexual activity. “Spirituality is how we connect with God; sexuality is how we connect with each other.” 
  • Develop a vision for healthy sexuality in your church. Clarify the expectations we should have in our relationships. Repent whenever and wherever sexuality devolves into selfishness and self-centeredness. Rebuild wise boundaries in the places God puts you.

When you commit sexual sin, take action. Don’t fool yourself into thinking your habits are going to change on their own. Repent, believe the gospel and get help.

#9: How To Build A Life You Love

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want To Miss:

  • The work you do must have motivation and purpose. God uses the work that you do to make him impossible ignore to the people around you.

  • Who are you growing into? Building a life you love is an ongoing project, not just a mile marker as we begin our adult lives.

  • What you do with your life does not define who you are. You are a person created by God who made you in his image, for his glory, to be loved by him forever.

#8: The Real Reason You Want To Be Productive

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want To Miss:

Pay attention to your productivity. A Microsoft study found that the average worker in the U.S. wastes 17 hours in a 45 hour work week. Honoring our employer and the people we serve by working with focus is a surprising way to make Jesus impossible to ignore.

Be like Ike. President Dwight Eisenhower developed a matrix for making decisions based on the importance and urgency of a particular task. Use the Eisenhower Matrix to prioritize your most significant work.

Put your most significant work first. The vast majority of leaders struggle to do their most significant work because these non-urgent tasks get crowded out by what has to be dealt with right now. Taking time to schedule work on your significant tasks is critical to your success.
