Following God’s plan for sex

January 17, 2020 by Dr. Jack Graham

Drink water from your own cistern,

            flowing water from your own well…

Let your fountain be blessed,

            and rejoice in the wife of your youth.

–Proverbs 5:15-18

I once heard a grandfather who was talking about his grandson. He said, “You know, my grandson has more temptations before school starts at 8:30 in the morning than I had out Friday night looking for trouble!” And you know, he’s exactly right. In fact, one young lady told her father recently, “When I see how casual sex is treated by my classmates, there are times when I wonder, ‘What am I waiting for?’”

So why should you maintain the purity and the standards of righteousness that the Bible gives? The world today is full of so many opportunities for men and women to go astray when it comes to sexual purity. So why not just give in?

Well, here’s your answer: because God wants what’s best for you. I can’t tell you the heartbreak I’ve seen and the emotional damage I’ve witnessed as a result of illicit sexual relationships. God doesn’t want you to experience that, so He’s protected you by giving you guidelines to obey.

God created His rules for sex with your joy in mind. Never forget that. So whether your young and single or have been married for years, follow God’s perfect plan for sex and you’ll experience His very best for you and your spouse!

GOD’S PLAN FOR SEX WAS CREATED WITH YOUR JOY IN MIND. SO FOLLOW HIS PLAN AND YOU’LL EXPERIENCE HIS VERY BEST FOR YOU!
