This week in our Bible Study we talked about the good stuff. How our husbands need us in the area of intimacy. This is one of the subjects that rarely gets talked about or just pushed under the rug, but has great significant impacts on our marriages. In our group, we were able to discuss how important it is and what the bible says about it. One of the verses that stood out to us was 1 Corinthians 7:4,5.
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. 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.
We learn that our bodies are our husbands and theirs, ours. We both literally possess the authority over each other’s bodies. Are we enjoying each other, are we completely satisfied with each other? God wants us to enjoy our spouse and not deny each other the gift of togetherness in romance. Wives let’s be encouraged to prepare our minds for the special bond of intimacy with our husbands, regularly. Let’s take extra care in our appearance and prepare our bodies for the oneness of intimacy and the blessing that God has graced us with in marriage.
