God created us as sexual beings designed for physical intimacy. The scriptures teach that each of us has been made in the image of God either male or female. “In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” (Genesis 1:27)
Many Christians spend their lives yearning for a sexual intimacy they never experience for various reasons including, temptation, deception, exploitation, and dysfunction.
Too often we seek satisfaction in ways that fall far short of the pleasures and joys that come with God’s design for physical intimacy. God invented sex and smiles upon intimate acts that are mutually satisfying to married couples. Husbands and wives that willingly give themselves to one another in order to meet their spouse’s needs and desires (rather than merely satisfy their own) will enter into one of life’s most exciting and beautiful experiences. To achieve this type of fulfillment requires replacing lies with truth.
