"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27"

Loving each other

Concerning Married Life
1 Now for the matters you wrote about: “It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman.” 2 But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband. 3 The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife. 5 Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 6 I say this as a concession, not as a command. 7 I wish that all of you were as I am. But each of you has your own gift from God; one has this gift, another has that.
~ 1 Corinthians 7: 1-7

I don’t even know how my husband and I started talking about how God see’s sex in marriage. He asked if He only meant for sex to be to reproduce.  I told him NO!  God made it for husband and wives, to love each other.

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. ~Ephesians 5:31

He made it for marriage, yes He did want us to multiply but it is also used to bring the husband and wife closer together.  When we are closer to the Lord and doing what He wants, loving each other, then our love life is so much better!  When we are doing our best to make our spouses happy outside of the bedroom too then that makes Him so happy!  Our love life also blossoms from it! 

So… this is short and sweet.  God loves it when husbands and wives come together in love.  When we are truly doing it, thinking of the other one, that pleases the Lord. 
This might freak some out but God is happy when married couples show love to each other!  Don’t think of it as, “God’s watching us”  think of it as, “This pleases the Lord!!”
