The gift of Sex

Is Sex a gift from God? The answer is yes. Sex was designed by God our creator as a special gift that allows a husband and wife to express oneness in intimate and exclusive love and to share in his plan for procreation (production of offspring). I know you may be wondering;  “Ok. if sexuality is a gift from God how could it possibly be so wrong if you are not married?” that is a good question.  In Genesis 2:18 God says; “it is not good that a man should be alone, I will make him a help meet for him.”  Therefore, sexual drives are the most natural high human bodies can experience. The downfall is that those sexual drives can be destructive when they are uncontrolled or misused.  I’ve learned that any intimate sexual relationship outside of monogamous fidelity within the covenant of marriage is condemned as sexual immorality. The fact that God says a man should not be alone he is simply telling us that he did not create sex for our own  personal satisfaction. When a man and woman come together, a chemical reaction takes place in the human brain. Sex is regulated and purposeful. When God said “therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife and they shall become one flesh.” ( Genesis 2: 24-25) This means having unity between the two. Two souls intertwined to one soul, one bed, and one family to glorify God.  Earlier I mentioned that sex was created for procreation because God says; ” Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth..(Genesis 1:28)” Sex was also created for comfort because by sharing yourself with your spouse it becomes a beautiful satisfaction that is deeper than ever. In Proverbs 5, it talks about God’s view of sex in marriage as being exciting, erotic, intoxication and a loving partnership. WOW, SEX IS DEEPER than you think…..

Yes, it may feel good and all that for a moment but its real topic that becomes misconstrued a lot.!  When I think back at the times I had sexual intercourse I wish I can take every moment back. It only lead to distortion and emptiness in my life. To actually believe that I had romantic nights of passion would be an understatement.  What really transpired was that I became ungodly soul tied to someone and emotional distress.

Can I get all the way real???  Although, the “world” ( social media, coworkers, friends, family members etc,) thinks SEX SALES and it can be exercised as a stress reliever or just because you’ve been dating someone for a long time its cool to have sex.  No, No, No, No and NO. The world says its okay to have sex but according to Romans 12:2; ” Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” As believers we are expected to exercise self-control in overcoming improper sexual impulses by the power of the Holy Spirit.  It’s not going to be easy but there is nothing too hard for God and I believe that it can be done. I’m doing it by faith and work because knowing what I know now, I want to live a life that is pleasing to God. If I can do I know you can too!

Prayer to God:

Dear Heavenly Father,

Please guide my footsteps to take the right path in this life. That I may take every step closer to your will. Walk beside me Oh Lord, and as you will never forsake me, help me to not go astray. Father, break every change that has joined these ungodly soul ties to me. Cleanse my soul Lord. Make me brand new in your sight. I ask that you grant me discernment to recognize these ties that are not like you. I thank you Lord for what you have already done. Have your way in my life.

In Jesus Name Amen.

    This is a good article. Frankly, more women and men that are Christians should know more about the Theology of the body, sin, and commandments of God. When sexuality immorality happens, we’re literally breaking the 6th Commandment which is designed to reveal God’s standard for the Sacrament of Marriage.

    Even married Christians need more training and knowledge on the importance of embracing natural sex Thats 1. Open to children and 2. Spouses share in love vs what the world packages as sex.

    But overall God post!
