God created sex to be a wonderful thing, but so many Christian marriages are not experiencing it this way. The fact that Christian men aren’t following in Christ’s footsteps is tragic. Some have heard the truth — or sense the truth deep within — but they aren’t practicing the truth inside and outside the bedroom.
God created sex because of its awesome potential to draw hearts together as one and for its potency in picturing Christ’s relationship with His bride, the church. God never talks about sex in the context of one person, and He did not give us our sexuality for ourselves. He gave us our sexuality for our partner.
The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife’s body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband’s body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife. (I CORINTHIANS 7:3-4)
