is Godís Purpose for Sex?
God created us with the desire for sex, and we
ought to understand his design that was meant for us in our
relationships with others about sex. Christians absolutely need to seek
Godís purpose in this area of their lives. God created us male and
female and because of that we will be attracted to one another, but we
must learn to control our desires because having sex, and even the
desire for sex with someone outside of marriage is not Godís plan.
Be Fruitful and Multiply, and Replenish the
ďSo God created man in his own image; in the
image of God he created him; male and female he created them. God
blessed them and said to them: Be fruitful and increase in number.
God intends for a married man and woman to have
sexual relations for the purpose of replenishing the earth. God wants us
to have sex so we will bring forth more children into the world for him
and to teach and train our children up in the wisdom of God! Had Adam
and Eve decided to not have sex and have children then essentially they
would have been rebelling against Godís purpose and instruction for
Controlling our Sex Drive
Even though sex is good, it must be controlled! As
we look at society we see many uncontrolled desires and sex drives
running amok causing much harm and danger. People blame God for plagues
and diseases but these things are caused from our own rebelliousness to
him! When we choose to disobey Godís commands for us bad stuff happens
because of our own foolish choices!
As with anything in life we must control it, so it
will not overtake our lives and cause spiritual and emotional turmoil
for us. We must control our sex drive, lest we hurt others, damage our
relationships and ourselves, and sin against God. If we donít control
our appetite for food we become overweight and sick. In the same way if
we donít control our appetite for sex it will control us and tempt us
into immoral acts of lust. A
sex drive must be controlled!
Did you know that a uncontrolled sex drive destroys
the body and spirit of a person. To some, it may seem enjoyable and
harmless, but eventually it will destroy your mind and body. God says
that sex is a beautiful and healthy part of life when it is between a
married man and woman. But he also lets us know that the sex drive
must be used for his purpose!
What Does God Say About
God calls sexual intercourse between two unmarried
people ďthe defrauding of each otherĒ.
When you think about this with a different perception than what
you have been brought up to believe, you too, will see how sex without
any real intention for marriage is a deception of each other and is
morally wrong. This is why God calls fornication a sin. Sex without love
and commitment is wrong. God does not want to see us heart broken or
sick from disease because we gave into our sexual desires. God loves us
and wants what is best for us, to reserve having sex until we are
ďFor this is the will of God, even your
sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one
of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and
honour; not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the gentiles which no
not God; That no man go beyond and defraud his brother (arouse
lust and passion) in any matter: for the LORD is the avenger of such, as
we also have forewarned you and testified. For God hath not called us
unto uncleanness but unto holiness.Ē
(1 Thessalonians 4:3-7KJV)
God Created Sex for Sexual Enjoyment in Marriage
Marriage is the only intended purpose for sex.
Anything else perverts and distorts sexual relations and the mind, body
and spirit of a person. God created sex for sexual enjoyment in
marriage. The bottom line is our sex drive was created for the purpose
of procreation and sexual fulfillment between a husband and a wife!
Realizing the proper use of our sex drive is the first step in
The First Marriage
ďAnd the rib, which the LORD God had taken from
man, made he a Woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, this
is now bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman
because she was taken out of Man. And they shall be one flesh. And they
were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.Ē (Genesis
The sex drive is not dirty, until we choose to abuse it. The sex drive is not sinful, until we choose to abuse it. Our sex drive is an awesome gift from God that should be used to honor and glorify God with by bringing forth children, and for our own enjoyment in marriage.
