Hello dear friend,
Greetings to you in Jesus name.
It’s a privilege to write to you things that God has been teaching me lately. Hope you are blessed by our previous blogs post.
Please take time to read, comment and share with your friends and loved ones.
Today I want to share few things on ‘why is it important to have good sexual life in marriage?’
Sex is the most private and personal thing in human’s life.
Here are the 3 things you should know about your sexual life in marriage;
- You fulfill God’s purpose:
Sex is the gift of God, God is the one who designed it, its God who has given us sexual desires, but all of it within marriage. Sex outside marriage is SIN.
God created man and woman and He commanded them to be fruitful and multiply Gen 1:28. How was humanity supposed to do so without sex?
Bible also says that a husband and wife is one flesh. Gen 2:23, Mark 10:8, Eph 5:31.
The reason Bible calls a husband and wife as one flesh because of the intimacy they share together.
Friend, if your sexual life in marriage is not healthy probably you are not fulfilling the purpose of God.
- You fulfill your spouse’s sexual passions:
The husband should fulfill his wife’s sexual needs, and the wife should fulfill her husband’s needs. The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife. Do not deprive each other of sexual relations, unless you both agree to refrain from sexual intimacy for a limited time so you can give yourselves more completely to prayer. Afterward, you should come together again. 1 Cor 7:3-5
It’s husband’s and wife’s responsibility to fulfill one another sexual needs!
Your body doesn’t belong to you alone but to your spouse.
If you are depriving from each other that should only of prayer (spend time with God), after prayer you should come back together.
- You avoid unnecessary sins:
One of the reason why people end up in relationship even after marriage is lack of sex in their marriage.
In a marriage, sex is a part of love. You get intimate with your spouse because you love him/her.
When this love is not recognized and not fulfilled in a marriage, there are chances that people cheat or walk out of the marriage covenant.
And there are few who get addicted to porn and masturbation because they are not satisfied sexually within the marriage.
I think, it’s your responsibility to fulfill and satisfy your spouse, sexually.
Sex is the one of the least heard topics in the body of Christ today. I think it’s time that we teach sex in church, in our family, among our friends and relatives and to everyone whom God brings our way.
As you are reading this post I pray that you will have a blessed and healthy sexual life in your marriage, if you are not married yet, please keep yourself holy and prepare yourself for your big day, in Jesus name I pray. Amen
Thanks for reading this post, please share this post with your friends and loved ones.
God bless you,
In His service,
