Today’s post is from one of my favourite bloggers, J at Hot, Holy and Humourous. In fact, I enjoy her blog so much, I asked her (I had never been so bold in my life before) to write a post for one of my pages – you can view it here. This is an area in life that I have become painfully aware of that I need to work on. And by the Grace of God, I am.
But, I digress…
In today’s post at 31 Days to a Better Marriage series, J gives some wonderful thoughts on being Godly and being sexy. In today’s world, it is very difficult to correlate in one’s brain that you can be both. We tend to think of sex as being dirty or cheap, or a necessity just to please our husbands. But, I am realising that to be Godly in marriage IS to be sexy for your husband.
Here’s the biblical truth: God created you to be a sexual being, and God gifted marriage with the blessing of sexual intimacy.
God is not the least bit taken aback by a wife who loves having sex or even desires sex more than her husband. He’s commanded us to have sex (Genesis 2:24), and the Bible fully recognizes that we ladies have some sexual fire in us (see 1 Corinthians 7:3-9). God planted that desire and expects us to fulfill it in marriage. Reference here.
Likewise, God blessed marriage with a physical manifestation of relational and spiritual intimacy with your mate: It’s called sex. And there is nothing wrong with you wanting to grab hold of that blessing.
Proverbs 13:12 states that “a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” God infused you with a longing for deep, physical intimacy with your mate. That doesn’t make you a flesh-crazed lunatic. It makes you the woman He made you to be. And He wants your marriage to fulfill that longing.
Meaning, find that husband and get busy, you godly woman!
I really like J’s thinking. And the fact that it is based on the Word of God shows me that it has lasting and eternal consequences, both in this realm and in the spiritual realm.
I have also been reading 31 Days to Great Sex by Sheila Wray Gregoire, and let me tell you – you have to buy this book. She explains in such detail why sex is important – not just for your husband. But for you too!
There are many blogs and websites from leading Christian authors and leaders on this topic – I think God is telling us to have some fun. Get your man and get down to it. Because, well, because that is what God has commanded us to do!
Now, where’s my hubby…???
