We live in a place of trouble and triumph: Jesus has conquered death, but his kingdom is not yet consummated. This keeps us from expecting too much and too little from sex in marriage. In this audio talk, Emlet offers practical questions and three takeaways as we consider sex in marriage: (1) Show love in every room of the house (marital closeness does not begin in the bedroom), (2) The sexual relationship involves work and play, and (3) Sex is a physical expression that points to a spiritual reality. Growing in wisdom and holiness happens in a bodily context: God calls us to an earthy holiness. Emlet concludes that the sexual relationship is a work of redemption in process that God uses to sanctify us.
