This was sent to me from a group i belong to on facebook called The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Worldwide, its from a daily devotional book written by the General overseer of the church, Pastor E.A Adeboye, this devotional book has been a blessing to millions including my humble self. Seeing this , i felt like shouting Hallelujah, as i have had some cases recently on this issue and my candid opinion is that as wives, we must perform our wifely duties no matter how "inconveniencing"..May God give us wisdom to do what is right and may He help us to rekindle the romance in our marriages, so that things can flow naturally..wink!wink! wink!lol, i await comments on this.


Memorise: "For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness" (1 Thess 4:7)

Read: 1 Thessalonians 4:3-7
3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;
5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:
6 That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.
7 For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

"Owe no man anything, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law" (Rom 13:8).

We are commanded to owe no man. That means a genuine believer will not be happy to owe God or his fellow man. One area many people are owing today is in the area of intimacy in marriage. It is a sin to refuse your spouse when the fellow demands intimacy. Some sisters have turned their bodies into commodities for sale. When their husbands grant their requests, they will willingly yield to calls for intimacy. But if they failed to perform - whether as a result of not having the means or deliberately, the woman will say in her mind, 'I know where I will get you'. Whenever he asks to be intimate, she will shun him. That is a gross abuse of God's blessing! Why did you marry? Some are always complaining of being tired, having headaches, having had a rough day, back pain, etc. If you are fond of making excuses to keep your body to yourself, remember you lost the right to do so the day you said 'I do' to your spouse. Refusing him or her under whatever guise amounts to violating your marriage vows. You are a debtor!

Do you know there are some men, even ministers who give baseless excuses such as "I am afraid of having another baby", "I am not just interested", "Is lovemaking all there is to marriage ?" and have denied their wives of intimacy for up to 3, 6, 12 months or more? At this stage, it has gone beyond just fraud to a height of wickedness. Are you starving your spouse sexually? If you frustrate him or her to the point of committing adultery, God will hold you responsible. Both of you will go to hell together and remain eternal enemies. Most women will not want to hear that their husbands have another woman outside, yet they refuse to satisfy them. If a man is satisfied with food, no matter how alluring the food he is offered outside, there will be no room in his stomach. Unfortunately, because a good number of men are sexually starved, there is room for strange women to fill. If your husband is keeping late nights, or going out with other women, before you blame him, first find out if you are not the cause. Are you satisfying your spouse as the Lord would want you to? If you do what you should, there would be no room for strangers.

Sexual satisfaction of your spouse is a strong weapon against strange men or women.
