God,Love, sex and relationships! We all want to be loved, appreciated and have pleasure and fulfilment in our lives. God gave us all the capacity to love and be loved, to have special friendships with others. He also gave us a sexual nature, and sexual desires. This was not just so that we would keep the human race going, but also because God wanted us to enjoy oneness with a life partner. This unity is actually a very powerful symbol of the way God wants it to be between us and Jesus Christ. (That is what the Bible teaches! )
Sex is a gift from God. It is not evil. But it is a powerful gift, and it can be abused or perverted.
Sex is like fire. In your fireplace it can keep your house warm. But if fire gets out of control it can burn your house down. It can even kill you. Sex is like that. Lots of people have now died of sexually transmitted diseases. Modern man may mock, but the best way to avoid diseases like AIDS, Syphilis and others is to limit your sex life to just one lifelong partner who has not gotten infected with these diseases through promiscuity. And until you find that person, abstinence won’t kill you. In fact, it will release a lot of creative energy which you can apply to achieving in many areas of life.
It seems a shame that people suffer so much and some die because of bad decisions with regard to their sex lives.
If you are married you can find good books in most bookshops about how to enjoy your marriage.
If you are single, wanting to be married, remember this: it is better to be that way than to be married, wanting to be single!
Until you get married, learn to make friends, get to know people of both sexes – but be strong enough to keep sexual activity right out of your relationships until you have found your marriage partner, and the date is set! Even then, keep your clothes on with each other if you want to fully enjoy your marriage later.
Abstinence is not necessarily easy psychologically, but it does have its rewards. If you concentrate on being the kind of person worth being married to, then God will eventually bring you the right partner.
To be honest with you though, the power of the Holy Spirit available to a Christian is more powerful than sex. Some may never believe or understand that – but it doesn’t change the facts. I mean, the Holy Spirit IS God. He is more powerful than anything He created, including sex. God told us to be filled with the Holy Spirit. The lack of this sometimes leads people to search for fulfilment in sexual activity outside of God’s guidelines. This kind of search will prove to be frustrating and ultimately destructive.
God bless you and happy sunday:-) (ff @joeloseiga)
