The "One Flesh" Challenge by Barbara Rainey

Ephesians 5:31
And the two shall become one flesh.

As a wife, I believe the Bible calls me to commit to my husband in a mutually fulfilling sexual relationship-to truly become "one flesh" with my husband. That means I need to understand his needs and desires in this area.

My husband's sexual needs should be more important and higher on my priority list than menus, housework, projects, activities-even the children. A friend shared something with me that I think puts the sexual dimension of a man in a biblical perspective. A man can send his clothes to the laundry, eat all of his meals out, find companionship with friends, be accepted and respected at work, be listened to by a counselor and in all those things not go against the will of God. But if he meets his sexual needs with someone other than his wife, it is sin.

I believe that many wives don't really understand how important the act of "becoming one" is to our husbands. We make time for the PTA, church work and helping a child with homework. Think about it: How often do you set aside time to be together? It may be a weekend getaway or a romantic dinner in your bedroom.

Perhaps one of the most "spiritual" acts a wife might need to do is put the kids to bed and invite her husband to go to bed early.


Did I mention Lisa told me this was dumb.....(sad face)
