SEX AMONG COUPLES – WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES – PART THREE
. COUPLES SHOULD LIVE IN MUTUAL SEXUAL SATISFACTION
“Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.
The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.
But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.
For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.”
God is awesome in his wisdom, He knows that there is a possibility that a wife may desire to have sexual intercourse with her husband without the husband having the same feeling or mood at that same time also may be opposite is the case, husband desiring the wife without her been in the mood.
What should we do in this scenario? The partner who has the urge and in the mood should wait until the wife / the husband is with the urge and in the mood?
Read what God said not me.
“Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband….” Due benevolence means kindness, compassion and generosity.
How do you explain this as husband or wife?
How do you see this statement compare to your attitude towards your spouse in this aspect of marriage?
Are you generous to him / her with your body?
Someone will want to ask, what if a spouse is sick.
Sickness? In any home where there is love your spouse will never be comfortable when you are sick. You will see it on him / her that he / she is not happy. This is to show that no couple will ever pray for the spouse to be sick. And in case it happens, you do not need to tell him or her except romance is dead in that home.
Sex is psychological; it is a thing of the mind.
If you see it as your responsibility to satisfy your partner, you can meet it at any time. In other way round, if it is not in your mind to do, you will see yourself reluctant to that.
As you don’t wait for your spouse to become hungry before you prepare food in advance so you can prepare your mind in advance for your husband / wife. If he or she makes the move fine you are already prepared and if not relationship continues
What does the bible explain in that same chapter, verse six ? Read this:
“Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency”
What does it mean to defraud in this context? It means to deceive, to cheat, to swindle, to trick or to dupe. God warned against this.
As a couple, have you committed any of these offenses? God expect a change in your marriage.
Couples who enjoy most of sexual relationship are happier together than those who do not.
Enjoy what God gave to cement your relationship instead of pretense and endurance.
Truly, without emotional attachment and fulfillment, marriage is endurance not enjoyment. You see, God knows it all more than you which explain why he created us male and female to complement one another.
Live up to the potential of God’s designed kind of marriage, by this you will never regret ever married.
