In this devotional with J. Parker on her book on Intimacy Revealed: 52 Devotions to Enhance Sex in Marriage, she talks about our thoughts on sex and what is god’s creation of sex. God created sex to be true, noble, right, pure, lovely and admirable. J. Parker stresses that you should view sex as a deep, meaningful, God-honoring act in a marriage.
I don’t struggle to see any of these attributes in our sexual intimacy now ,but I did in the past when we weren’t in a good place with our marriage. It was all of those things. But now that we’ve put God first and respect sex for what it is in our marriage and marriage bed. We accept sex now as it is as a good, righteous and beautiful gift from our Father.
Goodness and beauty is what is excellent and praiseworthy about God’s design for sexual intimacy in marriage.
