What is the Meaning of Sex?

Sex. It’s a constant topic today, isn’t it? Whether you read entirely within Christian media, entirely outside of it, or a bit of both, you can hardly avoid the topic. And if it’s not sex itself, it’s one of the related topics—homosexuality or abortion or marriage.

This, of course, is much easier said than done. At the end of the day, we can all agree that marriage is hard, yet beautiful. It’s an opportunity to learn to love and be loved, forgive and be forgiven. But at it’s core, marriage is a picture of the story of Jesus and how He rescued us, His bride, from the dominion of darkness that attempted to hold us back from God’s arsenal of incredible love.

Have you ever stopped to consider that were it not for the Bible, you wouldn’t be able to have a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ?  Think about it: If it weren’t for God’s written revelation of Himself to man, you simply would not be able to know how to become a Christian.  To the extent that He revealed Himself to you through the Bible, you are able to have an intimate relationship with Him.  Had He not revealed Himself to you, you would not be able to relate to Him as a son/daughter.  Revelation, therefore, is a prerequisite for having a relationship.  This is true not only of your relationship with God, but also with people.

Faith Over Fear

As a child growing up, I was afraid of closed spaces.  Any place that made me feel claustrophobic with no way out frightened me greatly.  I carried this fear within me, not willing to share it with anyone.
