Sex: God's Beautiful Gift to Marriage

One of the most beautiful experiences in this world is the sweet moment when a person falls in love. Everything in your world changes when you finally meet the person you know you are going to be with for the rest of your life. We've all prayed to God to send us that special someone who will love us unconditionally and support us through the good times and the bad.We give God a list of everything we would like to have in a spouse. We even remind God of his word in our prayers saying "Lord, you said ask and we shall receive so please do this for me." But why do we find it difficult to maintain God's Holy Standard once we meet the love of our life? Why do we contaminate our relationship with God and our mate by blatantly disobeying the word of God whenever we give into our fleshly lusts. We kiss. We touch. We fondle. Curiosity gets the best of us and we begin to wonder "What does he look like? What does she look like?"  and eventually....we fornicate. 

I know we are living in this new age society where today's generation feel we should change with the times but the soul saving truth is while the times have changed, but God hasn't.Today's mindset condones fornication by saying "How do you know if you'll like it if you don't try it first? or "We already know we are going to be together so we might as well"... God blessed us with his perfect love and then we contaminated it with sin.

God created the heavens and the earth thousands of years ago and established rules for us to follow. As time progressed, man decided he knew better and proceeded to disregard those rules calling them old fashioned and traditional. 
Now, here we are, a whole new world suffering from high divorce rates, broken homes, sexual perversion, teen pregnancies, STDs, murder/suicides and increased atheism. The family unit is broken all because man decided he knew better than God. 

People forget, sex was never meant for courtship. Sex was God's gift to marriage. It is the consummation of a union welded together forever. It is God's gift to you and your spouse but it is to only be opened AFTER you are married. People who have sex before marriage fail to realize they are actually stealing from God. You can't receive a gift until it has been presented and God is saying "Nope, not until after the wedding."

While we have all made our share of mistakes, it 's never too late to repent and start fresh (even if you have made some not so good choices in your current relationship)Talk with your significant other and make the choice to honor God's word. If he or she is not willing to wait, then they aren't the person for you. I'll be the first to admit, keeping your flesh under subjection is a serious challenge when you are dating the person you love. Especially when you've reached the point of love. You love the God in them. You love them for loving you unconditionally. You love them for their determination and drive. You feel complete when you are with them and you literally ache when you are apart from them. A million beautiful sisters or fine brothers could stand right in front of you but all you see is your love. You are ready to spend the rest of your life with this person.

When it comes to dating someone you love I encourage you to keep it Holy. No pun intended when I say this but it's important to remember the best kiss is God's KISS.

Keep God at the forefront of your relationship and your virtue will remain in tact. Mark 10:9
Involve yourself with a man or woman who is completely sold out to Christ & dedicated to obeying his word. II Corinthians 6:14
Study the word of God together as a couple. Hold each other accountable. Remain obedient to God's word & his instructions on dating. I Corinthians 7: 1-9
Sex..wellll...."You can't have sex if you ain't married yet!" I Corinthians 7:9

The blessings of God are poured upon those who obey him. Start your marriage off right and enjoy the never ending benefits of God's unmerited favor and blessings!
