Sex is Sacred

The Song
Your head crowns you like Mount Carmel. Your hair is like royal tapestry; the king is held captive by its tresses.
How beautiful you are and how pleasing, my love, with your delights!

We are in Day 4 of a 7 day countdown before the free screening of the movie “The Song” at Celebration Community Church on Friday February 13th at 7:05pm. “The Song” is a modern day re-telling of the Biblical Song of Solomon. Throughout this week I will be sharing personal insights as well as excerpts from Matt Chandler’s book "The Mingling of Souls”.

The sacredness of the marriage bed is seen here to be a correlation of, for instance, entering the Holy of Holies in the temple of God. I don’t want to overstate it. This is an analogy, not an equation. But it’s a good, biblical analogy. There was something holy taking place between husband and wife. “Holy” has often been defined as “being set apart for special use.” Sex certainly fits that description. It is not for everybody. It is set aside for special use in marriage. Sex is holy. It was sacred, special and unique.

Do you ever think of your spouse’s body as a holy temple of God? You should.

Your pastor and partner in ministry,
