Sex is a gift from God and He instituted it to our advantage. He wanted us to have a part in the process of creation.
Genesis 1:27-28 27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.’
We reproduce ourselves. God wants us to derive great pleasure from the sexual act.
Proverbs 5:19 A loving doe, a graceful deer – may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be intoxicated with her love.
God also instituted sex to symbolize the importance of relationships. The physical act symbolizes the union of Christ and His Church. It also symbolizes the making of a man and his wife into one flesh.
Sex is also a communication process – messages of life are expressed between you and your wife. Intercourse means communication – to KNOW one another.
Sex is a communication of the whole person – not only a body-to-body act.
God’s Word teaches us that there are three dimensions (3D) to sex: Spirit, Soul and Body.
The world’s view is one dimensional: Body to body. You are limited to this one dimension.
We are spiritual beings and therefore the focus of sex should be on the spirit and the soul.
Do not limit your interest and affection merely to the “equipment” (although it helps to have good equipment!) for this will demean the sex act.
The world’s view of sex is a body-to-body act – one-dimensional – that has no meaning, because it could be ANY body. It may not matter to the world, but it certainly matters to God.
God has given you one special mate in your life that deserves a special language of communication, a language that only the two of you understand.
Godly sex is the ultimate, most intimate expression of loving between a Man and his wife.
Key word: INTIMATE (wall-socket sex!) – It is where your partner looks you in the eyes and knows who you are.
Sex is a process
The physical act consummates the communication process. Men, don’t read the last page of the book first!! You have to start at chapter 1. It is a process that grows and culminates in the sex act. Sex doesn’t start the moment that you jump into bed!
Sex is a thermometer. It measures the warmth of the relationship.
3D sex knows no limits.
If you are only interested in the body, you will very soon run out of body to discover and you will have to go in search of another body (usually a younger one) to make further discoveries.
Sex is a social relationship. Sexual satisfaction is directly proportional to how well a man and woman integrate and harmonize their lives. There has to be total unity.
