How Important is Sex to God in Marriage?

intimacy blurredGod made sex between a married couple beautiful. He delights in it. Sex in marriage honors and is pleasing God. Becoming one flesh in marriage is symbolic of the covenant God has made with us in the union of Christ and the church. Ephesians 5:31-32 NIV reads… “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.” That’s how BIG of a deal marriage is to God. It is compared to the union of Christ and the church, the most important covenant there is.

Marriage is not easy. When the honeymoon is over, it’s difficult to stay in tune and on the same page about sexual intimacy and expectations. Watch our original film ‘Storms‘ and see if you can relate. It won two awards for outstanding actress and outstanding actor.

The Corinthians wrote to Apostle Paul about some of their marital issues. Seemingly the Corinthians believed good married Christians abstained from sex. Really? Paul clears up this misconception with this message:

“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, except perhaps by mutual consent for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.” -1 Corinthians 7:4-5 NIV

This does not mean that husbands or wives can take advantage of their spouses. You two need to agree on a healthy frequency both of you can feel comfortable with. This could mean a compromise, a mutual win in the marriage. Marriage is selfless not SELFISH.

Also, God commands the marriage bed be kept pure. 1 Corinthians 7:2 says: “But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband.” Anything else is adultery and will be judged by God. When it comes to what is allowed in the bed, I truly believe that you are to enjoy each other’s bodies to the fullest. Whatever is agreed upon between you and your spouse, so long as you both are comfortable with it, is acceptable in God’s eyes.

Don’t believe me? Read Solomon’s Song of Songs (Canticles, about courtship and marriage) and read how Solomon and his bride to be speak about enjoying one another. They celebrate sexual intimacy, praising each other and yearning for each other, inviting to enjoy. Why do you think this book is included in the Bible? Because God sees this as beautiful; it is how a husband and wife should enjoy one another.

That’s it. Go enjoy each other! It will please the Lord.
