  • Sex, Physical Intimacy, and God

    Dear Slavic Christian reader, 

    Did you know that God had a special plan to connect us and Him together through the act of intimacy? 

    Did you also know that when there was the Great Fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden, we lost that ability to be intimate until Christ reunited us through His death?

    One more beautiful fact, did you know that God created sex to be a way for man and wife to connect to one another?

    Let’s read on to find out more!

    Genesis 2 is where it all began. 

    Let’s start at verse 18: The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”

    19: But for Adam no suitable helper was found. 

    21: So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. 

    22: Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

    23: The man said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.”

    25: Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.

    Can you imagine how cool it must have been to have God custom-make Eve for Adam. What if I told you Christ did the same for you (if you’re married)?

     He’s got good taste, and He knows what you like, right?

    Adam and Eve were the first to experience the beauty of sexuality together.

    Not only that, the best part is that they felt no shame; they were just told to have fun and then make some babies-that’s it!

    So what does intimacy even mean, and why is it important?

    “Intimacy” is defined as: 

    -To be known, to be open with your thoughts and emotions

    -Letting your guard down, being vulnerable, showing [your spouse] how you feel 

    Intimacy is a way for us to be open to connecting with the one we were created to love. Let’s read more Scripture to go deeper. 

    1 Corinthians 7:2-4 MSG

    It’s good for a man to have a wife, and for a woman to have a husband. Sexual drives are strong, but marriage is strong enough to contain them and provide a balanced and fulfilling sexual life in a world of sexual disorder.

    The marriage bed must be a place of mutuality – the husband seeking to satisfy his wife, the wife seeking to satisfy her husband.

    Marriage is not a place to “stand up for your rights.” Marriage is a decision to serve the other, whether in bed or out.

    How beautiful and vulnerable is that? Dear reader, dear spouses, isn’t it crazy to think just how much value God places on mutual pleasure in marriage? Isn’t it neat to discover that enjoying that pleasure is something you were created for as well?

    So go on, share this article with the one you love and also with those that you want to bless as we bask in God’s gift of sexual intimacy together.
