World famous evangelist Nick Vujicic says people who have sex outside of marriage often do so to fill an empty void which can be filled by developing a solid relationship with Jesus.
The 32-year-old Christian motivational speaker, widely known as the “limbless evangelist,” opens up about imperfect love and his marriage to his wife of nearly three years Kanae in their book Love With Limbs: A Remarkable Story of True Love Conquering All.
While he admits that “we’re not experts on marriage,” the couple offers common sense advice (from a biblical perspective) on everything from abstinence to family planning while sharing a very personal account of their own inspiring journey through love.
“I want people to understand in this book that when God made Adam, God made Eve and it’s a design of God to be with someone,” Vujicic told The Christian Post in an exclusive interview. “And not just a relationship (where you hold hands, or have sex, or have intimacy), there is a sacred beauty in the unity of marriage.”
Vujicic, who was born with tetra-amelia syndrome, has inspired millions worldwide through speaking engagements and uplifting sermons. He met Kanae, 27, at an event in Dallas back in April 2010 and less than two years later they were married.
In February 2013, Kanae gave birth to the couple’s nearly 2-year-old son, Kiyoshi James Vujicic, and while they are happier than ever, their journey has been far from easy.
As is shared in chapter nine of their new book, the pair struggled a lot with abstinence (particularly during their engagement period), but ultimately they say that waiting until their wedding night was worth the sacrifice.
“Sex out of marriage is like the devil’s wine. How can the Devil’s wine be better than God’s wine? It’s the counterfeit,” said Vujicic who in the book says that he highly recommends a “short engagement.”
