Christians know that God designed sex, and he designed it to work best in marriage. But that doesn’t mean married sex will always be easy. Marriage takes work – even in the sex department.

“Intimacy isn’t just the physical acts. Intimacy is your heart. And for me, I think if there’s a disconnect on a physical level there must be a disconnect on a heart-mind level.”

“But if you’ve got two people in a marriage, and you want it to work, then you’ve already got a winning recipe.

“As you become intimate with your spouse, it is ultimately for God’s glory. And it’s building you guys together. To build your family stronger so that we can build a society that will glorify God. So it’s bigger than just the two of us. I think it connects to the mission of God and what God is doing in this world.”
