When we get married we begin a different type of search for true joy . This is the pursuit of experiencing someone who wants to be with you while knowing all of you and appreciating everything about you uninterrupted. there is an attraction in fully knowing someone, seeing all of who they are, and recognizing that they are lovable. There is a reason why we need and search for this.
We believe that this reason is why Adam and Eve were able to be naked and unashamed. There was nothing to be ashamed of. They were who they were. There was nothing hidden from each other and yet they desired what they saw. There was no hierarchy as they were created to “fit” and not compete. Together, God blessed them to be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over life in the sea, in the sky, and over every living creature that moves on the ground. In other words, they were created to work together. In doing so, there was a humility between them as they cherished the work and gifts that the other possessed and operated in. And there was more. Much more!
How did Adam and Eve come to have such a connection? How did they know such a covenant type of love? It's not just because they were the first couple to live it. The Word of God tells us in Genesis 2:24, "For this reason, a man will leave his father and mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." So, what exactly was the reason? What reason did Adam and Eve have then that we are desperately searching to connect back with today in our marriages? Join us as we share our perspective on how you and your spouse can live out what the very first godly marriage had, today! We look forward to your joining the discussion as you follow and rediscover with us what marriage covenant is and still can be.
