Sexuality tells us about God. For some, putting “God” and “sex” in the same sentence might seem sacrilegious. The only message some have heard is, “God said No. He doesn’t want you to have pleasure.” Some others seriously wish that God had come up with an alternative way to propagate the human race.
But if sex was God’s idea – and it was (Genesis 2:25) – then there must be more to the idea than pain and frustration. Instead, I believe it tells us something very powerful about God Himself.
Think of the worst possible things you have either experienced or know about in relation to a woman’s sexuality. You may think of words such as pain, exploitation, perversion, violence, abuse, molestation, control, ownership, trafficking, and more. Especially if you’ve been hurt here, the idea of sexuality may leave you feeling dirty, used, discarded, powerless, violated, and betrayed. Feelings such as fear, terror, revulsion, pain, anger, and despair may overwhelm you.
