True Sexual Intimacy

December 04, 2012

“Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge.” – Hebrews 13:4 ASV

Okay, here’s an opener that might get your attention: Do you have true sexual intimacy with your spouse? Or have you bought into the idea that the best, the most enjoyable, most intense sex is always found outside of marriage? We are constantly bombarded with this message by TV shows, movies, the internet and books. Unfortunately, it has become so common that we often don’t even notice it anymore.

This message is a lie. It is the exact opposite of what God had in mind when He invented sex. Any sexual act that is performed outside the context of committed love in marriage is always less than the best – in fact, it’s wrong. It brings emotional harm, broken relationships, turmoil, and guilt. In the end, it will destroy lives and families. God intended sexual intimacy to be His greatest gift for marriage and marriage alone.

So seek to trust the inventor of sex in order to experience the sacred enjoyment that God has in mind for you. Seek God’s best for true sexual intimacy in your marriage. You’ll find the bond it gives the most gratifying you’ll ever have.
