Day Three… Don’t Open Till Christmas

How would you feel if you were really excited about receiving a gift for Christmas. Christmas morning comes and you rush down to the tree. To your horror, there are five people, some friends of yours, some of them are complete strangers, all playing with your new game system, wearing your formally new clothes and eating your Christmas goodies. When you walk in they all stop, apologize and hand you the controllers (all of the high scores have been saved though, the games have a few scratches) your food minus a few bites and your clothes which have some new stains on them. How would you feel?

Imagine how your parent would feel? It would crush them. They had intended for only you to receive the joy of opening the presents.

These days, people have just gotten used to this concept in regards to purity and sex. People will tell you that nobody gets to open their own presents anymore. You shouldn’t expect a new gift. Everybody gets used gifts. Pretty sad isn’t it?

Most people have put themselves in the wrong part of the story. Most people think that everyone should be allowed to open other people’s gifts. Wrong.

Sex is actually about giving the most precious gift you can to THE ONE person that has promised in writing and in ceremony, to love only you. Purity, abstinence and marriage is actually about the best sex!

God’s word says it in Ephesians 5. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansinga her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church— 30 for we are members of his body. 31 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”

Questions for the gift givers 1. In a perfect love story, would you rather have the slightly used gift of sex or the new gift?

  1. What makes waiting for “The One” so hard?

  2. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being most important, how critical is it for you to experience sex with each person you think you love?

  3. Isn’t being in love enough? Why or why not?
