Five Things Every Believer Must Know About Sex
God gifted married people with the most enjoyable act — the act of sexual intimacy. The importance of sex has been debased and ignominiously represented by the world to the extent that believers have joined the trend.
Sadly, many Church leaders reject the idea of teaching accurately on sex. This has led to incestuous, unimaginable and sacrilegious practice of the act called sex.
Hence, it is incumbent upon me to disseminate accurate biblical teaching to believers, especially every young people who want to live to please the Lord.
I hereby present to you, five basic things believers must know about sex.
FIVE THINGS BELIEVERS MUST KNOW ABOUT SEX
(1) Sex Is Ordained To Be Within The Ambit Of Marriage
And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
According to Scriptures, the opposite sex can get naked with his or her partner, without any iota of shame. This is biblical! Sexual intercourse that is not done within the ambit of marriage is sin.
Adam and Eve were the first couple in the Bible as they have been joined together by God. So, they were unashamed of their nakedness. Sex is for couples not for unmarried people.
Paul, the Apostle said those who could not keep themselves should get married. He said, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife. And every woman should have her own husband. This is quite instructive!
Today, young people have sex with people they are not married to. While some men go as far as paying prostitutes to have sex with them. This violates the original intention of God for sex. For believers, no marriage, no sex
(2) It Is Possible To Live Without Sex
7 For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.
8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, it is good for them if they ABIDE EVEN AS I.
1 Corinthians 7:7-8
Paul said he had the gift to keep himself and even wished that some unmarried people could be like him. But he said it’s a function of gift. My point here is that stop assuming that every man cannot stay without sex.
There are several men in the Bible that sexual activity could not be traced to them. They are men like John the Baptist, Jesus, Jeremiah, Paul and so on. These men lived without sex. There are still more other people today who can do without sex.
However, I’d implore you to get married if you can’t stay without sex because that is God’s provision.
3) Pornography Is Sex
Pornography pollutes the mind and destroys the eye. It promises satisfaction, yet, it cannot satisfy anyone’s sexual urge. What many Christians fail to realize is that, pornography is also seen as sex before God.
But I tell you that anyone who LOOKS at a WOMAN LUSTFULLY has already committed ADULTERY with her in his heart
There is adultery of the heart and this is done by people who look lustfully at the opposite sex. Pornography provides viewers with the opportunity of looking at people lustfully.
Because people watch live sex and they are left to gaze and stare at naked bodies. In Jesus words, that one is called ADULTERY OF THE HEART. Beware!
Seriously: How To Live Without Sex
(4) Married People Should Have Sex Often
Every married man and woman have been given the prerogatives to have good sex together. However, God’s Word is against lesbianism and same sex marriage (Romans 1:26 – 27). Paul wrote to the Church at Corinth in 1 Corinthians 7:5 saying;
1 Corinthians 7:5
Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.
Couple can abstain from sex in order to fast but they’re not to take too long to come together. Married women who deny their spouse of sex unnecessarily are doing their spouse a great deal of harm.
When you are married, stop giving excuses. Enjoy yourself and stop denying your spouse of the sex he or she deserves. Make your reasons known to your spouse if you are not going to have sex for the time being.
5) Sex Before Marriage Is Sin
1 Thessalonians 4:3 (KJV)
3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should ABSTAIN FROM FORNICATION:
The fact that the world sees sexual purity as lack of exposure does not invalidate God’s stance on it. They may call this old-fashioned but if it is God’s way. And I am ready to follow that way. What about you?
Be reminded that sex before marriage is still a sin. And sexual pleasure outside marriage brings heartache and endless sorrow. You can’t be wiser than God who detests such practice.
