In this week’s devotion in J. Parker’s book of Intimacy Revealed: 52 Devotions to Enhance Sex in Marriage is about Sex and Jesus. True marital sex reflects our relationship with Christ. The one flesh bonding of marital sex resembles our union with Christ as believers by being focused on our husband and Jesus as in being committed, trusting, connected, excited and fulfilled. Jesus is our ultimate bridegroom for the Church and for us. Sex in marriage reflects how our walk in Christ is and/or vice versa.
Sex in our marriage does feel being intimately bonded. It wasn’t at the beginning but it does now, 10 years later. We’ve had to learn what sex means to us and to God and appreciate the bond it creates for us as a couple and deepening that relationship with God. It does now have both love and respect towards one another as a couple and to God in our marriage bed. We can keep nurturing that towards each other and to God by investing in only each other and to God. Do what glorifies God and our marriage. The more we walk with Christ, the more we can be deeply united with each other in our sexual intimacy (not, just physical, but also emotional and spiritual too!). It really feels amazing and beautiful when we’re both fully devoted to our spouses and Christ at the same time.
