SEX HIS WAY

God is love, for love is the heart of God's holy nature. "The love of God is the perfection of affection God has which moves Him to give Himself to His creatures continually. This love is not merely an emotion. It is an act of God's will in which He eternally gives Himself" - states Kevin J. Conner (B.Th., M.Div., Th.D. - Hon.), in his book the Foundations of Christian Doctrine, 1980, Bible Press, Portland, Oregon.
Love is a triunity, Conner says, which must have a lover, the love, and the loved. For the Godhead, love finds its perfect expression in the triunity of the Father (Lover), the Son (Loved), and the Holy Spirit (Love).
God created sex, and sex is good His way, which is the way in which we express our love for our ordained, marriage mate, between a man and woman. Lust is the opposite of God's plan for our love life as lust seeks to get, not give.
God formed and breathed life into Adam, and in turn created Eve as Adam's help mate, both being very good. When sin entered the picture, a fallen nature became common to all humanity. Which in turn corrupted the good and natural, sexual love bond between a man and woman. To restore our sexual freedom in God's love based nature, we must place God's will first in every matter, including our love life.
THE TRIUNITY OF LOVE
Sex His Way, is to express the love of God for His beloved (2nd Corinthians 13:11). For God is love (1 John 4:8,16), and He loves us, His people (Deuteronomy 7:6-8,13; John 14:23; Psalm 11:7).
As we learn to express the love of God, we desire to give instead of get. As He gave His all, on Calvary's cross (John 3:16; Galatians 2:20). As we seek to live and dwell in love unto one another, we dwell and bask in God's will of love (1 John 4:16-19). This is God's desire for our love life, as we learn to express our love by and through the example of the Godhead's love for His people (John 17:24-26; 13:34-35).
To love as God loves, we learn to grow in line with His providential care example (Psalm 145:9,15, 16: Job 38:41; Matthew 6:26; 5:45; Psalm 36:5; 104:21; Acts 14:17; Romans 2:4). Best expressed in His goodness of grace, mercy, and love!
Ephesians 2:4-7, explains God is rich in mercy, great in love, shown by and through His expression of grace and kindness to His beloved, who are His people. For in the ages to come He will show us exceeding riches of His grace in the kindness towards us through Jesus Christ, the Son.
Exodus 34:6-7, expresses in detail, God's mercy and grace as showing forth through His longsuffering, and abundance of goodness, and truth. Therefore to express sex God's way, we too will hold true to the desire to show the fruits of His example, and the triunity of His great, enduring love (John 3:16-17).
