What is the difference between Sensuality & Sexuality?
Answer: Sex was designed by God. It's a beautiful marriage gift that connects husband and wife not only physically, but spiritually.
Sex is designed to be used with the boundaries of marriage to deepen the relationship between husband and wife.
When honored and used within God's design, it creates an amazing bond.
"Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh." Genesis 2:24.
Sensuality is a perversion of sex. It's Satan's counterfeit option for sex, making it all about personal gratification and getting your needs met versus the connection and love that God created it for.
For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5
Warning: Be careful not to stir up sensuality through
Why Should I Care If I Do? Because sensuality detaches sex from a marriage relationship and makes it all about the physical aspect and personal gratification. It is at the source of people having affairs and struggling to imagine only having sex with one person for the rest of their life.
The Truth: You may think you can get away with physical gratification and self-serving through sex, but the truth is that it will either cause you heartache or your marriage will be deprived of the deep connection you should receive from sex, leaving you disconnected from your husband.
