Understanding Sex


What if you were given a million dollar gift on your 7th birthday? That money should be used until you reach your 18th birthday. You can use the money to whatever you want to use it. The money is freely given to you on that birthday. You were entrusted to have it early and not to spend it until the right time comes. 

While waiting, you got tired and impatient. Since you have the money already, you decided to spend it, after all, you will be spending it anyway right? why not spend it now? 

Your 18th birthday came. No one showed up, no one even remembered that special day of yours. You're all messed up. You remember those years when you have a lot of friends travelling, shopping, drinking and partying with you, now, you have nothing, not even a single centavo. You regret the things that you've done. You should have not spent that gift early. It actually didn't make you happy, it just gave you fake friends, fake happiness, fake life, you gave it all the way but now, you can't give something any more, because it's all gone and spent. 

The money that is mentioned on that story symbolizes sex. It is given freely to us since the day we're born. God entrusted us to keep that gift until marriage, only reserved to someone special who deserves it. If we spend that gift to someone who's not worthy of it, the value gets lessen. Everytime we use and spend it, we lose it over and over again. 



"As a Christ follower, I could honestly say that sex (copulation) is a sacred blessing given to married couples. An engagement to such stands as a covenant in order for sons and daughters to multiply - more people means more souls to be reached out, more worshippers, more witnesses for Christ, more Christ disciples. Sex is so sacred that if placed out of context and out of God's grace, can be so harmful as it will compromise the promise of God to us in having an everlasting life."
- Ericson G. Guinto, Professor and church leader. 

"But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband."
-1 Corinthians 7:2 
Let us be reminded that sex is only given to married couples. Sex outside marriage is a disrespect to yourself, to your partner [or future partner] and to God. Make yourself pure from sexual immorality [like pornography, polygamy and same-sex activities], Honor your body for it is a temple of the Holy spirit. 
"For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God;"
-1 Thessalonian 4: 3-5
 "Sex can never be equated to pornography because in the first place it is not how God designed it - a total distortion of a beautiful creation of God. Sex is sacred for two people become one through a covenant they made to God; a communion, a commitment to be faithful to one another. It is extremely opposite the way it should be in pornography - a deception that will lead you to degrade a woman because of just sexual selfish desires."
-Ephraim Termulo, Church Youth Leader/Freelance Software Engineer, 

Let us flee ourselves from sexual immorality by choosing God's light everyday, and that is His word. Let us enjoy sex that's inside marriage. Sex is a gift that should not be opened at the wrong time and wrong motives. Just like wine, the more we wait for it, the more it will taste good.

  1. I agree with you Steve...
    The problem here is that most men involve themselves in sex and other related activity because it's more like a part of their ego na.... For them, having sex with their partner will somehow define their manhood as it is something they can brag about and something they can be proud of.. which is not really good...
    Thanks for sharing

  2. Wow I like the message. Yes, thanks. You put me back in track. Respect is a wonderful thing to feel, maybe even better than sex. If I will choose among the three "love, trust and respect". I'd choose respect :)

    1. Yes, shayn. Respect is something that we have for everything that we do, if respect is non, therefore, we lose our values as well.

  3. What a beautiful, timely post! Thank you, Steve. Sometimes I shake my head and feel we are circling the drain, particularly here in the U.S. We went from a society whose country had been dedicated to God to a country where citizens who believe in God are mocked. I shudder when I think of the consequences... God is lifting His hand of protection from America and other immoral,violent, Godless countries. People just don't get it.

    1. I also feel you Chris, not most people today understand this gift that has given to us. In our times today, people keep on fighting and standing for their want even if we know the truth and know that from the beginning that what they're fighting for is totally wrong.

      I pray that our nation and the world see this truth and that God be once again the center of everything. :)

  7. To be honest, it isn't my business how people conduct themselves with sex. I do agree with you that sex without love does cheapen it a lot and can cause problems, but if people are going to do it, they will, sadly. I prefer it to do with my husband, whom I love and care for as it makes the act much more meaningful.

  9. Agree much ako sa'yo Steve :)
    Sex is a natural thing to us humans
    Ibinibigay mo lang ito sa taong handa mong mahalin, ipaglaban at makasama habambuhay.
    Hindi ito isang pampalipas oras lang at pag nagsawa ka na basta mo na lng iiwanan ang partner mo.

  13. i would say sex is nowadays not a taboo, guess it really depends on how individual actually perceive how the "money" should be saved and be used.. afterall each of us are responsible for what we have done on and for ourselves..

  15. One way to keep the marriage bed pure is to avoid pre-marriage sex until marriage. In this way, there is no sexual memories (from anyone) that the devil can use to mess marriage.
