I love the contract between Nicodemus and the woman at the well. (Listen to that message here.) Looking at both characters together we see how Jesus offers a third option between legalistic moralism and licentiousness. Unfortunately, the text was very long, and I didn’t get a chance to talk about everything I wanted to talk about. First on the list of things I wanted to talk about was the need to fight sexual sin with the gospel. The chief problem with sexual sin is that it is a broken cistern that holds no water. And when we try to drink from it we will miss the living water that actually satisfies us.
In the next post, I’ll give you some of my favorite resources for applying a biblical perspective on sexual sin.
