Sex Lessons From Joseph and Mary’s Marriage

Yesterday, I shared the following during a Bible study with Koinonia mommas, women in the Christian Mommas mentorship program:

And he did not know her sexually until she delivered her firstborn son, and she called his name Yeshua.

Matthew 1:25 (AMP)

Joseph and Mary worked together not to disrupt God’s divine process. They understood their relationship was a tool for God’s glory. By denying their sexual desires as young married couples, they demonstrated that sex was not the glue holding their marriage together. Fulfilling God’s purpose for their union held their marriage together. Marriages crumble due to faulty foundations. We must seek God’s heart for our marriage. Have a God vision and mission for your marriage. Let’s have sex in marriage, a sexless marriage is unhealthy. However, we must fast and pray more often as couples and put sex aside when needed. Sex must not be a god in our relationship.

Do not deprive each other [of marital rights], except perhaps by mutual consent for a time, so that you may devote yourselves [unhindered] to prayer, but come together again so that Satan will not tempt you [to sin] because of your lack of self-control.

1 Corinthians 7:5 (AMP)

PS: We are receiving applications for Koinonia 40-day FREE mentorship program. Sign up today to join the September cohort!

If today was your last day on earth, do you know where you will spend eternity? Are you sure you will make it to heaven? If you are not sure, you need to give your life to Jesus Christ. Please say the prayer below and let me know about it here.

Say this: Heavenly Father,
I acknowledge that I am a sinner. I believe you exist and you sent Jesus to die for me. I receive your love and forgiveness. Reveal yourself to me. I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Amen

Welcome to God’s family!
