He created this amazing experience between a husband and wife. An act so spectacular, so holy, only God could have dreamed it up.
It screams out to us....."I LOVE YOU, my child! Oh how I LOVE YOU!"
It comes out of the amazing creativity and the huge capacity of His love. Imagine all of God's love for you, wrapped up in a single act between a man and his wife. We don't tend to think of intimacy in this way, but we should. It's God's love, felt and experienced unlike anything else on earth.
Like everything good God created, satan has distorted it and tried to destroy the foundation it was created upon. Our culture has stripped the holiness, beauty and giving nature, out of sex and intimacy. It's become dirty, selfish, and criminal and be assured, it breaks God's heart.
But you and I can celebrate and worship God for the way He always intended sex and intimacy to be. We can instill in our children the truth...the loving boundary...the holy gift...the heart behind God's plan.
Let's come back. Let's engage with God in this area of our lives. Let's invite Him into our marriage bed. As strange as that may sound...He wants to be present, blessing what He ordained and created. He made us sexual beings. He created us to enjoy pleasure within the loving boundaries of marriage. He designed it, thought it up, and implemented it in the relationship of the first man and woman.
So let's worship Him today, for His amazing creativity and love that poured out of Him in the design of intimacy. He is an awesome God and I want Him to know we have not forgotten His intention and original design of sex. Share this blog with your spouse tonight and...well...perhaps engage in a little worship and celebrating! :)
