Well at least the title made you read this far. Sex, sex, sex, it is everywhere in our society. Wherever you go there is sex. On television, on billboards, at the mall, at schools, everywhere you go there is sex. Everywhere you go the message is the same; “Do it, do it, do it.” There is one refuge though. There is one place where we don’t talk about it…church. If the church does talk about it, you know what they will say, “Don’t do it! Don’t even think about it!”
The problem is that is not what the Bible teaches. We are actually commanded to do it…and get this to enjoy it!
15 Drink water from your own cistern, running water from your own well. 16 Should your springs overflow in the streets, your streams of water in the public squares? 17 Let them be yours alone, never to be shared with strangers. 18 May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth. 19 A loving doe, a graceful deer– may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be captivated by her love.
Did you notice God says to be captivated by? Her love. You can enjoy her breasts, but God’s context for this enjoyment is in a loving exclusive marriage relationship between a man and a woman. In the proper context God commands us to have sex, and to enjoy sex.
