YES I CHOOSE THAT TITLE TO BE PROVACATIVE, IT’S A TEASER TO GET SOMEONE TO READ THIS POST.

THE GODLY MAN PART TWO

WARNING, THIS IS A FRANK DISCUSSION ABOUT SEX. IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE READING ON THAT TOPIC DO NOT PROCEED.

 

Faith in Christ is intended to bring about a complete “make-over” in one’s thinking and behavior. This “make-over” is the process known as sanctification. A vital part of our sanctification involves a transformation in our thinking and behavior in matters of sex. Faith in Jesus Christ should greatly impact a couple’s sexual relationship within marriage, just as it impacts our relationships with those outside of marriage.

 

Hebrews 13:4New American Standard Bible (NASB)

4 Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge. (the best interpretation of this verse is “make the marriage bed undefiled”.)

 

A Godly man will keep smut and filth and pornography out of his life.

There is no room in the sanctified marriage bed for sex toys or wife swapping or unclean fantasies. Don’t believe any statistics (another word for lie) such as more than 80% of all couples fantasize about someone else while having sex with their spouse isn’t true.

Nor is dirty, course, vulgar language to be part of the bedroom.

 

If you are a woman and your husband tries to talk you into something you are uncomfortable with or you know is wrong. Don’t let him talk you into it, don’t let the “Christian Husband” tell you that you have to be submissive and do whatever he says. You need to look him in the eye and say “no, I will be the best wife I can be, I will be faithful, loving and adoring, but I will not let you degrade me or make me do something I know is wrong or I’m not comfortable with.”

A Godly man should respond compassionately and with genuine sorrow for defiling the marriage bed. Don’t let your pastor or some counselor tell you otherwise.

1 Thessalonians 4:1-8; 1 Finally then, brothers and sisters, we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received instruction from us about how you must live and please God (as you are in fact living) that you do so more and more. 2 For you know what commands we gave you through the Lord Jesus. 3 For this is God’s will: that you become holy, that you keep away from sexual immorality, 4 that each of you know how to possess his own body in holiness and honor, 5 not in lustful passion like the Gentiles who do not know God. 6 In this matter no one should violate the rights of his brother or take advantage of him, because the Lord is the avenger in all these cases, as we also told you earlier and warned you solemnly. 7 For God did not call us to impurity but in holiness. 8 Consequently the one who rejects this is not rejecting human authority but God, who gives his Holy Spirit to you.

Over the years, I have been asked many times about the will of God. All too often Christians agonize about whether some specific action or decision is God’s will for them without realizing that God’s will has been made known to them in more general terms. In our text, for example, a Christian is told in the clearest of terms that sexual immorality is not the will of God, no matter who the other person(s) might be, or what some of the particulars might be. Elsewhere we are told that a Christian woman is free to remarry if her husband has died (see also Romans 7:1-3), with only the condition that he must be in the Lord – saved (1 Corinthians 7:39). If an unbeliever asks her to marry him, she does not need further guidance regarding God’s will than what she has. It is not God’s will for her to marry outside the faith.

 

There are some who have chosen to follow an unbiblical notion regarding the will of God. They think that God’s will is for them to be happy. Thus, if something makes them happy which God’s Word has specifically forbidden (like sexual immorality), then they are tempted to set aside obedience to God’s clear teaching for what they think makes them happy.

 

The goal of sanctification is not man’s happiness, but man’s holiness, to the glory of God. To be holy is to be set apart, unique, not common. So, when there is a question of God’s will, one can usually discern His will by asking whether the matter in question sets us apart from this world and apart to God. Does it draw us nearer to God and away from sin? Does it bring glory to God? In short, knowing what God is like, will it please God?

DO THE RIGHT THING, THE GODLY THING, ABSTAIN FROM SEXUALLY IMMORALITY.
