Sexual attraction between two Christian lovers is healthy as long as it is not allowed to overrule their desire to honor God in their lives. When it is allowed to overrule and reject the Word of God, their sexual attraction turns into lust, not love. Lust means wanting to have sex with someone you are not married to (Matthew 5:27-28).
Whenever you get confused with the difference between love and lust, always remember this: LOVE WAITS! LOVE IS PATIENT! LOVE ALWAYS REJOICES WITH THE WORD, THE WILL AND THE TRUTH OF GOD! (1 Corinthians 13:4-8a) ///
