This is a continuation of the message. This morning I dealt with Singles! If you missed the write up, I would recommend you find time to read it. We shall be looking at married couples who are legally married (joined as husband and wife). Majority of marriages end in divorce because of husband/wife not fulfilling marital duties. Some women have deprived their husband sex (vice versa) which has led to extramarital affairs (outside of marriage). However, this should not be the case! We see in verse 5 of the verse “Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent” And it further explains ” come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of lack of self- control.

This is to say that couples must come to a mutual understanding/consent. It is not a decision to be taken by one person but rather both couples. This reminds us all why the Bible encourages us not to be unequally yoke with unbelievers.

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14).

If you settle with an unbeliever and you mention abstaining from sex due to prayer , he will not understand! That’s why we are all encouraged to marry someone of the same faith.

If you are reading this write up and already married, submit to your husband! If you have not come to a compromise of abstaining from sex then do not disrespect! If you disrespect you are eventually pushing him outside. Instead I would suggest you go on your knees and pray to God to touch his heart. There is nothing God cannot do. Woman humble yourself and stay submissive. Do not start fire in the house that you will not be able to continue. Calm down and be prayerful. Remember that it is not a rule to stay away from sex but rather it is giving you permission to be separated for a time as stipulated in 1 corinthians 7:6.

If you are single and reading this, know that when you get married, you have no authority over your own body. Your husband has power over your body (vice versa). May the Lord grant each one of us wisdom not to miss it in life because of disobedience. May we be respectful to our own husbands in Jesus Name.

If you are married and have errored, amend your ways so you don’t lose your place in marriage in Jesus Name.

God bless you and have a phenomenal evening!
