We aren’t actually going to talk about sex folks. We are gonna talk about something more important……God!!!!! What does He have to do with SEX!!! Personally…everything. In a relationship..everything. In our walk with God….everything. He created sex for us to enjoy each other (male and female). We have sexual needs, each and everyone of us. To put it in the vernacular of today…we all need to get off sexually. We need to have that sexual release that make us feel loved and enjoyed.
So what does that have to do with God, Jesus and the bible. The bible is a treasure trove of knowledge. Sex was created by God (Gen 1:27-28) 27God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”…
Now before you go off and think, he is going to bash Homosexuals, not gonna happen. We is talking sex not sexual orientation. That is not why I decided to write this little item. I actually don’t care. well I do care but we can save that for another time.
God created sex so that man would multiply and spread all over the world and to His great delight, it worked! Man reproduced like bunny rabbits and we spread like wildfire. We covered the entire world and we did it with such glee and gusto.
God created sex not just for reproduction. He created it so that we as humans could form a union with our partner. (Gen. 2:23-25)
“23 The man said,
24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. 25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.”
So sex creates a union between a man and a woman. A bond that is strong and good. Leon Patillo said it best in his Song “Flesh Of My Flesh.” You can check out the song here by Leon Patillo.
God also created sex for help. As humans not only are flawed, we are also in need of a good helper. Be it a man or a woman. (Gen 2:18) “18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” Now I know that this verse actually concerns the woman. She was created to help man. But I think that we can use it for both sexes. Truth be told, we both need help from time to time. When we are sick or laid up with a injury. Man might be strong but (and as i am a man i can testify to this) men are wimps when we get injured or are sick.
As I said before, sex was created for procreation. (Gen 4:10) “4 Now the man had relations with his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain, and she said, “I have gotten a manchild with the help of the Lord.” We have sex to increase the population of the earth. We do cause we are driven to. We do so because we need to.
God created sex so that we might calm our needs. Proverbs says in Chapter 5:17-19
“17 Let them be yours alone
And not for strangers with you.
18 Let your fountain be blessed,
And rejoice in the wife of your youth.
19 As a loving hind and a graceful doe,
Let her breasts satisfy you at all times;
Be exhilarated (intoxicated) always with her love.“
The same can be said of woman. Let her rejoice in the husband of her youth. Be intoxicated by him as he loves her in the only way that he can. Let her rejoice when she is taken by her husband and let her feel the joy of their union.
So sex is between a man and a woman. For reproduction, enjoyment, fulfillment, for the joy of it.
