I love that last weekend our pastor gave an amazing sermon about sex. I know, I know… You probably think I’m crazy crazy writing this but I found the whole thing so fascinating and it’s the perfect example of what sex is supposed to look like! The bible says that sex is only for marriage and never to be done outside of marriage… SUPER IMPORTANT!! We went through one of the most amazing and explicit books of the bible which is Song of Solomon or aka Song of Songs and also Genesis 1 and 1 Corinthians. I learned so much and want all of you to hear what marital sex is supposed to be like. You can listen to the sermon on our church website. Visit www.ajesuschurch.org
Here is a list of 7 things about marital sex that you should know…
1. Marital sex is romantic and verbal
2. Marital sex is visual
3. Marital sex is safe
4. Marital sex is holy
5. Marital sex is responsive
6. Marital sex is the way to become one
7. Marital sex is blessed by God Himself
I know I’m not going into great detail but this is just an outline… You absolutely MUST listen to this amazing sermon! Definitely worth your time and if you need me to mail you a copy please ask and I’ll gladly send one! :)
As husbands and wives, we need to be generous to each other when it comes to sexual love… Men and women are different and we need different things…
2 things we need to do are…
A. Always respect and honor our husbands (Ephesians 5:33)
B. Always be responsive to our husbands attempts at romance… Listen to more on this in the audio of the sermon.
You aren’t off the hook on this one! ;) There are 4 things for you to do as well when it comes to your beautiful bride…
1. Love your wife and have eyes only for her! (Invest in this amazing woman that you chose to marry)
2. NEVER compare your wife to other woman
3. Never be rough with your wife and always serve her
4. Be romantic and affectionate romantically as well as verbally
It’s always so important to put others needs before your own and this goes for your spouse, as well as your children and others in general. I always feel so good when I wake up in the morning and am in the Word, reading and dwelling on what the Lord has for me and I love to ask myself, ‘What can I do today that will make my husband and kids lives easier? What can I do to serve them today, Lord?’ He always gives me something when I ask this and I’ll tell you, it blesses me every time. I want to live for Him, not me. I want to serve Him and not myself… It’s always His will and not mine! As soon as I loose sight of that for one second the enemy sweeps in and tears me to shreds. In which case it’s time to repent, and He always redeems. His love is so perfect and all encompassing and I just love that I serve a God like this! I’m so unworthy but still He loves me and I am washed clean by His blood. Christ paid my ransom and all of yours and He bore our shame… How can we not follow and serve someone who has done that for us!?!
Today, ask the Lord what He wants for you, ask how you can serve someone else, and I guarantee you it will not only bless another person, but it will bless you as well, beyond what you could imagine. If you can make one persons life easier, even for just a moment, then you have shown them Jesus. And sometimes, that all it takes for someone to change their life forever. It’s because of His love, that we live!
