Christians are called to be salt and light. Are we succeeding? Author and pastor Scott Sauls believes it's time for believers to do a better job helping our friends and neighbors see the real Jesus in us. There are two commandments that summarize the Bible and our calling: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and love your neighbor as yourself.

Sexual intimacy is just that, intimate, and that makes discussing the topic difficult. But Christians must push past our personal discomfort if we are to have any hope of conveying a Christ-honoring vision of biblical sexuality to our children.
