Relationship on my mind. I have been pondering on the why, how, what, where and when to dive into this ocean of possibility, the union of two hearts, souls, and bodies to become one indivisible organism before God. I am writing in terms of the biblical principle of marriage as being between a man and a woman, coming together to become a single organism.
In Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground. 27 God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
In Genesis 2:18 The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone, I will make a helper suitable for him.”……..22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. 23 The man, said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.” 24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. 25 Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.
In the course of the next few post, I will be examining some topics starting with verse 25 of Genesis 2. Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame! A man and a woman in a relationship are meant to be transparent with each other and much more as intended by God. However, in our generation, this is not the case as we have evolved crookedly and the original intention of The Union has been subverted by wickedness. How do we regain lost ground? How do we reestablish The Union of two minds, body and soul to beat as an indivisible organism before God and man in purity?
I had erroneously believed I was not qualified to handle such a topic, considering some facts, and with the thought that I may be too subjective. However, having pondered on this topic for a while now, I am prepared to look through an objective lens. I have been able to finally answer and straighten out some things for myself and clarify some for countless others that would benefit from this expository.
Stay tuned for more as the Holy Spirit leads!
While waiting, do remember that Jesus loves you. Regardless of your marital status, disability, and limitations of all sort, you will be accepted into His kingdom. John 6:37 All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. All you have to do is to repent, that is turn away from your sin, flee from it, accept Christ as your personal Lord and savior, confessing His Lordship over your life, dwelling in His word and living by it. Feast on Christ and sin will have no power over you. Jesus Christ is Lord!!!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
