God Didn't Make Our Bodies Only for Sex
Years ago, John Piper introduced the notion of Christian Hedonism, an attempt to reframe a concept rich in sensuality. "We all make a god out of what we take the most pleasure in. Christian Hedonists want to make God their God by seeking after the greatest pleasure—pleasure in him," Piper said. I've long liked that idea, yet I think we tend to approach it too intellectually. It's time we started exploring how eyes and ears, but also skin, limbs, tongues, and noses might delight in God. In that, Christian singles may even enjoy some advantages.
