Air Date: 2015-09-16
God loves sex. Surprised? Well-known author and speaker, Dan Allender, reminds listeners that sex was designed by God to be a good and enjoyable part of marriage. Dan asserts that God wants couples to experience intimacy and joy through the sexual union, and that sex, in reality, is a big part of how couples can delight in one another and their God. Sex isn’t just about pleasure, however, but about knowing the other person wholly and completely.
