Main Scriptures: Ss.7:10
More Scriptures: Gen.2:25, Heb.13:4, 1Cor.7:5
You would observe that in the last few days we have explored the foundational attributes of the godly husband, the same character of Jesus Christ, who is the perfect example of the good shepherd. At the end of the seventh day, we have been able to spell the word HUSBAND. I trust God that you have been blessed. I pray that the encounter shall be visible for all to see including your wife and children to the extent that they shall exclaimed that you are indeed the good shepherd.
Today, I shall be sharing with you the last virtue which completes the word HUSBANDS. It is sexuality. It is intimacy with your wife. And this includes sexual intimacy and physical display of fondness like kissing and hugging. Your wife is not a piece of wood neither is she a lifeless person. She is made to have sexual feelings as well as expect loving embrace from you. As the lover of your wife, you must envision your wife as the most beautiful and attractive woman in the whole world. You must see her as a treasure that you must hunt for with passion and gratitude. You must desire her body, her smile, her kiss, her hug and every part of her body, notwithstanding her age and how long you have been married to her.
But why would God want you to be sexually involved with your wife at all times? The answer is provided in Scriptures. I am my beloved’s and his desire is for me. (Ss.7:10). Don’t give your sexual desire to another woman. It belongs to your wife only because she wants it. They were both naked, the man and his wife and they were not ashamed. Gen.2:25. There is nothing to be ashamed of when you are sexually intimate with your wife. It is your right and it is her joy. You must never allow pornography, club and another woman to take away the sexual responsibility that you owe your wife. According to John chapter 10 and verse 10, those distractions will only lead you to death and destruction (Jn.10:10). There are two fences that you must bring down if you want to be sexually intimate with your wife. The first is that you must forgive your wife and live an offence free life. The second is that you must consciously close the door of your heart to the strange woman.
So, when you wake up in the morning, be the first person to embrace your wife. You must deliberately hug her. You must kiss her forehead as often as possible. As the true vine to your wife, you must have a longing for your wife so much so that she will always look forward to having you around. You are never wrong being sexually intimate with your wife. It is for your good and hers too. Make this your earnest desire. I will set not wicked thing before my eyes. I hate the work of those who turn aside, it shall not have part of me (Ps.101:3)
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, have mercy upon me for denying my wife my emotions and sexual intimacy.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, help me to desire my wife with passion and fondness.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, deliver me from the strange woman, depression and bad faith.
I have the mind of Christ, who is wants the husband and his wife to be sexually intimate, and I express true and fond intimacy to my wife all the days of my life because that is what makes me the good and godly husband in Jesus name. Amen.
