Oh, how I love to talk about the precious, glorious, metaphoric and spiritual meaning of sexual intimacy which is found in the marriage of one man and one woman!
Gazing at the Truth of God about the spiritual meaning of sexual intimacy, it is not hard for anyone to understand why the devil tries his best to deceive and confuse us in this particular area.
Yes, we shall know the Truth and that Truth shall set us free! (John 8:32)
Oh, may the LORD open up our eyes so that we can see the blessing God so desires to pour out in our sexual lives. ///
Have you ever heard this saying: “Sow a thought, reap an action; sow an action, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny?”
Well, I usually read or hear it in the context of sin and the consequence of sin, but I think this same trend can be used for good and righteous things. After all, we all are habitual creatures. I mean, we learn something and it will be our habit.
If I sow a thought that comes from the Word of God, I will reap the action from it. Let’s say, if I meditate on the Word of God that says, “Don’t you know that you yourself are God’s temple” (1 Corinthians 3:16), I begin to see myself as I am, the temple of the Holy God. Then as I stay with the thought and the meditation of the Word, I start to lose interest to be nothing but the Temple of the Lord. Sin loses power on me. I reap the action. Then I love staying away from that which is sinful and continue meditating on the Word of God more. Then meditating and reaping righteousness becomes my habit. As I keep on doing it, it will become my habit to the point where I do it everywhere I go; even when I eat and sleep and do anything and everything. Meditating and reaping righteousness becomes my character. Then righteousness becomes the story of my life, my destiny!
I think I love the logic here, don’t you? Let’s try it. It should work. After all the Bible says, I have hidden Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You. (Psalm 119:11) ///
