According to one survey, 95% of Americans have sex before marriage. Based on this, one might conclude God changed His mind about preserving sex for marriage. While people offer all kinds of excuses to justify premarital sex, the Bible is clear that God designed sexual intimacy for marriage. Of course, we know God is not against sex—He created it. But He knows its purpose and the best way to enjoy it. Expressions of sexual attraction and marital love are recorded in the book of Song of Songs, chapter 4: “You have captured my heart, my treasure, my bride. You hold it hostage with one glance of your eyes, with a single jewel of your necklace. Your love delights me, my treasure, my bride. Your love is better than wine, your perfume more fragrant than spices. Your lips are as sweet as nectar, my bride. Honey and milk are under your tongue. Your clothes are scented like the cedars of Lebanon. You are my private garden, my treasure, my bride, a secluded spring, a hidden fountain.” Rather than excuse our violation of God’s moral code about sex, we should confess to Him our weakness. We should trust Him to give us wisdom and strength to reserve sex for marriage.
