Redeeming Attraction

Modern Romance

Review this week’s message.

Key Scriptures


Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—for your love is more delightful than wine. Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the young women love you! Take me away with you—let us hurry! Let the king bring me into his chambers.


We rejoice and delight in you; we will praise your love more than wine.


... Dark am I, yet lovely, daughters of Jerusalem, dark like the tents of Kedar, like the tent curtains of Solomon. Do not stare at me because I am dark, because I am darkened by the sun. My mother’s sons were angry with me and made me take care of the vineyards; my own vineyard I had to neglect. Tell me, you whom I love, where you graze your flock and where you rest your sheep at midday. Why should I be like a veiled woman beside the flocks of your friends?
Song of Songs 1:2-7 NIV

  • Describe your perfect date.
Start thinking. Ask a question to get your group thinking.
  • Which part of this message was most impactful for you and why?
  • Think about your views on attraction, desire, and relationships. Have any of those views been shaped primarily by media and culture? How would those views change if they were shaped by God?
  • Attraction is good, ordained by God, healthy, and not only physical. How might talking more about attraction and relationships in a small group setting make a difference in your life?
Start sharing. Choose a question to create openness.
  • How can you encourage and support the single people around you?
  • How can you open up to others about where you are in your relationships and get the support you need?
Start praying. Be bold and pray with power.

Father, thank You for creating each of us with a need for relationships. Help us to understand how You’re calling us to live out these relationships. Let us experience the joy these connections can bring into our lives. In Jesus’ name, amen.
