Why God Made Sex (Another Reason)

1 Corinthians 6:15-17 says, "Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? May it never be! Or do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, 'THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.' But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him. "

In the marriage covenant between a husband and wife two bodies intimately come together to join in one flesh, creating a new birth. In our covenant marriage to our God, two spirits intimately come together to join in one spirit, creating a new birth. Thus we are "born again" (Jn 3:3), a "new creation" (2 Cor 5:17), and have a "new self" (Eph 4:24) & the Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God (Rom 8:16).

Physical sex teaches us about our spiritual union with God & the new birth that results. How awesome is our God?
