Realizing that sex is a gift from God for marriage gives us an understanding of how to have great sex God’s way! Without boring you with a bunch of stats on sex in our culture, it’s clear to see we live in a sex-crazed world! Just turn on your nearest TV, radio, computer, or even your smartphone. But what if we did things differently and began to really believe God about sex, instead of following the world’s example?
Doesn’t it make sense that if sex was God’s idea and His creation from the beginning of time, that He knows how we should use it? Yes (and thanks for agreeing with me)! So take a look into the mind of God, through the Apostle Paul, as he describes the responsibilities of husbands and wives regarding sex in marriage.
1 Corinthians 7:2-5: 2 But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband. 3 The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife. 5 Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
I think we all agree that sex is used quite often by Satan to tempt us and to destroy our marriages and families. How will you take a stand today and use this great gift to strengthen your marriage and satisfy your spouse?
