Affair-Proof Your Marriage Through Intimacy—Part 2
Yesterday we learned the first step in experiencing intimacy in marriage…by creating an atmosphere for that intimacy. Today, I want us to see the results of that deliberate effort.
As we mentioned yesterday, Solomon has been complimenting his wife and affirming her. Look at her response to that affirmation in Song of Solomon 7:10,
I am my beloved's, and his desire is toward me.
She is digging it! She is saying, "He really loves me!" Solomon's affirmation of his bride has created this atmosphere of intimacy. And look what she says next in verse 11,
Come, my beloved, let us go forth to the field; let us lodge in the villages.
She is grabbing Solomon's hand and saying, "Let's get a hotel room!" Then there are verses 12-13,
Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine has budded, whether the grape blossoms are open, and the pomegranates are in bloom. There I will give you my love. The mandrakes give off a fragrance, and at our gates are pleasant fruits, all manner, new and old, which I have laid up for you, my beloved.
Friend, catch what is going on. Solomon has affirmed his wife saying, "Honey, you are beautiful! I am so glad I married you. I married out of my league. You are wonderful. Your body is great. I am so happy!"
Her response? "Wow, he loves me. I'll tell you what, let's go away and have a little love vacation. Let's take a few days off." That is enough to get any husband inspired to rent a hotel room!
If you want to affair-proof your marriage, make intimacy a priority!
