Friends With Benefits
Friends with benefits is typically a term that is used to describe friends that have sex without an emotional involvement. This term encourages casual sex. Relationships that start like this usual end with the couple falling in love or continues until someone gets their heart broken. But to put it plainly this is fornication, it can be adultery or even infidelity. But no matter how you spin it, it is a sin.
There is nothing casual about sex. God never intended for us to share our bodies freely with each other. Yes, man and woman were made to be together. But the bible says that a man should have his own wife and each wife should have her own husband to keep them from the temptation of sexual immorality. Sex is a benefit of marriage. But in todays society, the enemy would have us believing something else.
Today I want to talk about a different relationship. Our relationship with God. This is the most important bond that we can form during our lifetime. A friendship with our creator. A close intimate connection with the one who knows us better than we know ourselves. Doing what you can to create close personal association with our Savoir causes a response from Him. Where He will respond to you directly.
Having this type of relationship comes with many benefits. Incredible things will begin to happen because as you draw nearer to Him, He will also draw nearer to you. As you talk to Him, you will realize that you really have his ear. You will begin to hear from your creator. This isn't always in an audible voice. He can speak in your dreams, in visions, sometimes you will just have a 'knowing' of what He is telling you. There can be an awakening of your spiritual gifts. There can also be divine interventions and visitations.
The benefits of a relationship with Him are endless. Experiencing His love and finding His purpose for your life can be amazing. There is no down side to a relationship with Him. And it is guaranteed to be life changing and comes with no regrets. When I think about friends with benefits I think about my relationship with the Lord. It is the best thing I have ever done. I just want to encourage you to try Him today. Don't wait, He is waiting for you.
(1 Corinthians7: 1-2) Now for the matters you wrote about: “It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman.” But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband.
Jeremiah 29:12-14 12Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. 13And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. 14And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.
Deuteronomy 4:29 29But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
