Today we are discussing the most personal topic in marriage. S**was designed by God to celebrate oneness in marriage. Read book of the Song of Solomon to get a full picture of His perfect plan for marriage to be enjoyed by a husband and wife.
Unfortunately we are all sinners and selfishness and bitterness and resentment can enter our marriage relationship, causing God’s perfect plans to be disrupted. Here are a few verses to keep in mind regarding our physical relationship in marriage.
Hebrews 13:4 “Marriage should be honored by everyone. And every marriage should be kept pure between husband and wife. God will judge guilty those who commit sexual sins and adultery. ”
1 Corinthians 7:4-5 “The wife does not have power over her own body. Her husband has the power over her body. And the husband does not have power over his own body. His wife has the power over his body. Don’t refuse to give your bodies to each other. But you might both agree to stay away from sex for a while so that you can give your time to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not be able to tempt you in your weakness.”
CHALLENGE: Try to initiate time with your spouse today, enjoy each other the way God designed our marriage to be.
