Sex, Men & Marriage | Blue Marriage
Updated: Oct 9, 2019
“Marriage is to be honored by all, and husbands and wives must be faithful to each other. God will judge those who are immoral and those who commit adultery.”
Hebrews 13:4 Sex is a powerful blessing that was created as the covenant seal of marriage. Or, as my wife calls it, the “sticky glue of marriage.”
It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that even pagans do not tolerate: A man is sleeping with his father’s wife. 2 And you are proud! Shouldn’t you rather have gone into mourning and have put out of your fellowship the man who has been doing this?
1 Corinthians 5:1-2
Sex and Manhood Sexual sin didn’t start in the 1960’s era of free love. Mankind has struggled with it from the very beginning of time. Sex is a frequent topic in both the Old and New Testament.
GOD CREATED SEX, BUT THE WORLD ACTS LIKE SATAN OWNS IT God knows man’s need for sex and also our weaknesses when sex is involved. He warns us about being caught up in this world and what the 3 most destructive threats are to men.
Lust of the eye
Lust of the flesh
For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.
1 John 2:16 Is there regret, pain, shame, disease, unintended pregnancies, kids out of wedlock? These are all consequences of sexual sin. But, There is HOPE. The light of Christ will free you from the darkness of sexual bondage. HOW DOES THIS SPEAK TO YOUR HEART?
18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body.
1 Corinthians 6:18
Do not spend your strength on women, your vigor on those who ruin kings.
But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband.
1 Corinthians 7:2.
The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband.
1 Corinthians 7:3 I pray we men bond together to pursue God’s desire for our lives. Sex, temptation and addiction have taken their toll on us. It’s time to give it to God.
