Pastor Eugene talks about the contexts into which the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem took place - the Jewish religious context and the Roman political context, to name just a couple that he mentions. He continues to talk about how looking at Good Friday with these contexts in mind can allow us to see the immense impact of that day - an impact that is still felt today.

Pastor Eugene starts up Quest's sermon series on relationships again by continuing the conversation about marriage. This week, he tackles two very difficult, controversial topics: divorce and same sex marriage. In unpacking these topics, Pastor Eugene emphasizes that he does not want Quest to be defined by its stand on these topics, rather, he wants Quest to be defined by how it loves people and lives out the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Ray presents ten principles that form the framework of a biblical foundation for marriage as "designed" by God. Marriage is a life-long covenant relationship in the context of the gospel of grace. It requires the willingness and desire of wife and husband to submit to each other and to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who is the One who binds them into the unity of "one flesh" and empowers them to sustain the relationship.

God is the creator of all good gifts. Sex is a beautiful and powerful gift from God and we ought to treasure and enjoy it within the boundaries that God created for it - boundaries God gave us not to burden us or to arbitrarily keep us from pleasure, but for our protection but also so that our soul can thrive.

Pastor Eugene continues spelling out a theology of singlehood and states that the primary question as to whether one should remain single or get married is, what will allow me to serve Christ better with integrity? For some, it is not an issue to remain single and to use the freedom that it provides to serve the Lord in ways that would be more difficult for married couples. For others, the God-given sexual desires of life are such that the covenant of marriage provides an outlet for that. Marriage also comes with a unique kinds of partnership and support that many who are single will never know. Both choices are viable and Biblical ways of living an authentic Christian life.
