Sex Ed - Friday
18 May your fountain be blessed,
and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.
19 A loving doe, a graceful deer—
may her breasts satisfy you always,
may you ever be intoxicated with her love.
We conclude the week by talking about the topic of intimacy. Sex is a large part of the life experience, yet many people are afraid to discuss it from God’s perspective. Why? Sex is one of God’s greatest gifts. Christians, then, have a right to not only have sex and discuss sex; we also have a right to the best sexual discussions and the best sexual experiences on the planet! Great sex is a gift from our Dad, God!
As we grow closer to God in holiness, God opens the path for the gift of sex to be enjoyed. God is in the business of doing what’s best for His children. In some of the best things we have on earth – art, literature, music, science, etc. – God has glorified Himself by using Christians to help the world discover excellence. It is consistent with God’s nature for Christians to be excellent at sex, so we can then place the topic in the light and remove it from darkness. God desires for us to communicate, be committed, conflict, and share romance in ways that glorify Him. He opens the door for us to enjoy Biblical intimacy. He is in the business of giving us the very best, and that includes sex.
- On a scale of 1-10, how much do you feel you know about and enjoy sex? What plans will you make to move one step closer to a “10” this year?
- God, thank You that every good and perfect gift – including sex - comes from You.
