This will be my second article, hoping, that unhappy married couples will go to Christ Jesus to begin the healing process that their marriages desperately need.
My next topic will be on a subject that is hard to face. The topic of sex gone wrong in marriages.
Unfortunately, this is a very common problem for many married couples.
For one reason or another, the wife no longer wants to have sex with her husband. But she will submit and without telling her husband how she feels, she will continue to have sex. What her husband never knows is, that afterward, when she is alone, she lies in tears and sadness, dreading the next time that she will be asked to have sex, to please her husband.
What neither partner realizes, is that this behavior is sinful. Both the husband and wife have put their own needs above the needs of the other (they have both become, self seeking).
The husband has put his need for sex above his wife’s needs
The wife has put her need for tenderness without sex above her husband’s needs
The wife, even though she has submitted to sex, is still complaining in her heart (with tears) and that is not suffering without complaining (no longer patient and longsuffering).
The husband refuses to give up sex without complaining in some way (exhibiting some un- Loving behavior).
Is there a solution to this, without one of them still sinning?
We Love God by fearing and obeying Him. We are obeying Him when we call Christ Jesus Lord and when we Love each other.
Our hearts, minds and bodies belong to Christ (the Son of God, who is God with us).
We are to serve God without distraction and this dilemma between married couples causes a huge distraction. This distraction keeps them from Loving God above all things. So they must go to Christ and resolve these differences and the only way they can resolve these differences, is to allow Christ to teach them how to Love.
And to Love, one must be:
Patient and Longsuffering
Not parading (bragging about) itself
Is not puffed up (thinking of self more important than others)
Not behaving rudely
Not seeking its own
Thinking no evil
Not rejoicing in iniquity
Rejoicing in the truth
Bearing all things
Believing all things
Hoping all things
Enduring all things
Because Love never fails.
Once married couples learn to Love as they are commanded to do, then all other things will fall into place, and the sins behind the bedroom doors will disappear.
This will then allow them to be ready to serve the Lord without distraction, as they should have been doing in the first place.
12 Hatred stirs up strife,
But love covers all sins.
1 Peter 4
7 But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. 8 And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”9 Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. 10 As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
1 Corinthians 7
35 And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, and that you may serve the Lord without distraction.
