10 things all singles and married couples need to know about sex
1. It is created by God
Yes, you heard me well. Sex is created by God for every man and every woman to enjoy the depth of pleasure and for the reason of procreation. It is not evil, but it is supposed to be sweetest things that can happen to man within a marriage relationship
2. It has boundaries
God has said in His word that it is to be practiced within the sanctity of marriage. The moment this injunction is flouted, there would be all manner of confusion. God placed those boundaries there in order to protect you! If man has listened to God in this area, sexually transmitted diseases would not have been on the scale it is now.
3. It is spiritual
Why do you think money ritualists often demand that their clients sleep with someone as part of their requirements? What is the connection? It is because money is spiritual. You often see that the one that has money uses as a tool to get the sex from the one that is ready to offer his or her body but needs the money! It looks like it is logical but it is nothing more than human degradation when you have to unwittingly sell your body and do the most basest and perverse things to get money.
But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul. (Proverbs 6:32 KJV)
4. There are consequences
You need to know that the consequences of pre-marital sex can be damning. This is because it is a direct violation of God’s principles. The consequences of adulterous relationships are well spelt out in the scripture. The chaos and disorder that is ushered into one’s home is not something to enjoy. It is not worth it.
26 For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.
27 Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?
28 Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned (Proverbs 6:26-28 KJV)
5. It is a negotiation of your destiny
You need to know that when you are confronted with compromise, when you are caught in a trap of adulterous web, your destiny is at stake. Beyond the pleasure you get, the devil is actually after your soul. He is after your relationship with God and he is contesting your glorious future. When you say, ‘I cannot stop,’ what you are saying is ‘I am doomed for judgement and hell.” But this is not what God wants for you! And certainly, you can stop when you want to stop!
Remember Esau, it was a negotiation of destiny, and the same lack of self control that made him exchange his destiny is the same factor that comes into play when you dabble into dirty world of sexual compromise.
Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. (Hebrews 12:16 KJV)
May you not sell your destiny for temporal gratification that will bring regrets later. May you not sacrifice your destiny on the altar of compromise that will bring tears and agony later. May your eyes open to know and to see that at the point of sexual compromise, the contention is more than the 10-minute pleasure and that it is about your soul! May God grant you the grace to say NO!
