Sex has long be taunted as something that is dirty, unholy and an eye sore to God. Although pre-marital sex could be termed the above especially the former, sex in marriage is anything but an eye sore to God. As a matter of fact, sex in marriage is a pleasure unto God.
The times a man and his wife engage in sexual relations, God is smiling as if to say “yes, that’s my boy, give it to her” or “that’s my girl, show him what you got”.
Sex is beautiful, wonderful and very holy in the confines of marriage and its absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. Before having sex in marriage, pray that God guides you in the right way to satisfy your partner because the Bible says “its not by power or by might or the amount of sex styles you know but by My Spirit sayeth the Lord” Zechariah 4:6 (paraphrased). Its one thing for pray for children, its another thing to act on that prayer. A farmer can pray for a harvest but if he doesn’t plant the seeds, harvest is a mere fantasy. Same thing with children, you can’t pray for children and not have sex when you are not virgin Mary.
We here Pastors and Religious leaders mention the 10 commandments in the Bible and also how a man must love his wife and how a woman must respect her husband but they fail to mention the biggest commandment in marriage which is mentioned in 1 Corinthians 7:3,5 (paraphrased) “The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights (make love to her), and likewise the wife to her husband (make love to him). Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together (have sex) again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.”
I remember writing an article titled “Pastors And Their Sex Lives” (click to READ) and a reader’s comment all but put a nail in the coffin of the Church’s apparent denial and lack of depth in their teaching of sex. Michael, the reader commented and I quote “Hello everyone. This is really an eye opener, I always feel sad or bad as if I have committed a crime after making sweet love with my wife..and after it I always feel as if I have sinned against God but after reading this article and the scripture placed on it…I just realized that it was ignorance that have been making me feel like that…thanks to you all for this eye opener”.
Remember he used “wife” to describe his woman which means he’s obviously married but still felt guilt or sinful when making “sweet love” with her.
Good to know as a result of an article I put up, his mindset has been corrected for life.
Sex is not bad, sex is beautiful and God loves sex. Just remember to get married before engaging in it.
