Sex is not a microwave meal

microwave meal 2013Sadly, sex before marriage seems to be an accepted activity. In the Song of Solomon it is written repeatedly not to arouse or awaken love until it so desires. Meaning: Don't. It's dangerous for you. Our bodies are the Temple of the Holy Spirit. Sexual activity outside of marriage is not the best for us.  The values of love and subsequent marriage have been challenged and eroded away. We have a fast food mentality upon many issues. A microwave meal


It's as if there is a thesis before us written about love and marriage and the word "sex" has been taken out of it, placed on a blank page as a word on its own and exploited. Totally denying the context within which it was placed and created for. Human relationships take time. Love requires many sacrifices. Countless opportunities for forgiveness arise. It is hard work. You can have microwave sex, but God wanted sex to be within the marriage covenant. Within a binding commitment before Him. Two people who know, love and trust each other. Not people who meet, have sex and never meet again. Television and society portray this as exciting. Romantic even. Certainly fulfilling


But we are sowing into our lives a physical destruction. Satan has a right and pathway through which he walks into your life. Every person you have sex with you join with to become one. We search for this one, which can become "ones" and become fractured and splintered. God is the only one who can solve such issues. We need to come to Him and allow a restoration of our broken and weeping spirits


LORD!! I ask for total cleansing, total restoration. Set me free from my past sins. I break all soul ties. I'm sorry for the choices which were wrong. I take responsibility for my actions. I receive and ask for grace for healing.  In Jesus’ Name. Amen. Provide the healing balm of Gilead, Jesus, to the wounds which run deep
