Sex Isn't The Love Test
"Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy,
it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It is not rude,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails."
I Corinthians 13:4-8
Sex was designed by God to create a bond, both physical and spiritual between two persons, a husband and wife together forever and to bring more children to the earth to be stewards over what God created. That spiritual bond is not easily broken and is supposed to create a positive union of mutual care, fidelity and trust for both persons so that physical and emotional needs can be met. The way God intended.
"If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal." I Corinthians 13:1
A gong makes a lot of noise but isn't going to take the garbage out when you ask. So before you crawl into bed with somebody make sure wedding bells are ringing and the final exams are passed.
A clanging cymbal gets attention and could distract from the real issues -don't trade a melody for one. Wait. The choice is yours. Christ died so you could have one. Trust. He's Faithful. Be sure that when you hear wedding bells it's not just a noisy gong.
Prayer: I love You Jesus and I thank you for letting me choose who I end up with. I am grateful you didn't leave me where I was and that you have a good plan for me. You said You would never leave me or forsake me. In Jesus Name. Amen.
