Did You Know (4)

4. It Provides A Language For Understanding Union With Christ



A Bible scholar named D. A. Carson writes, “It is as if the only pleasure and intimacy in this life that comes close to anticipating the pleasure of the church and her Lord being perfectly united on the last day is the sexual union of a good marriage” (Love in Hard Places, 191). A pastor-scholar named similar John Piper writes, “God created us with sexual passion so that there would be language to describe what it means to cleave to him in love and what it means to turn away from him to others”; and again, “God made us powerfully sexual so that he would be more deeply knowable. We were given the power to know each other sexually so that we might have some hint of what it will be like to know Christ supremely” (Sex and the Supremacy of Christ, 28, 30).

Only an ignoramus will idolize sex, thinking they can bend whatever rules to get it. Even when engaged in matrimony, it’s ultimately to point toward UNDERSTANDING our TEMPORAL and ETERNAL with Christ. We actually begin to experience a love better than anything in this world, the truth so deep and an embrace so profound that we let it define their sexuality.
