Today's Verse : Genesis 2:24


February 24, 2012

For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be
united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
-- Genesis 2:24
We are different! God makes us male and female so we can be
complements of each other. Each is made in God's image. God's
intention is that a husband and wife find their primary human
relationship with the other. They still honor their parents, but
their home is with each other. Their two lives become one. In this
context of lifetime security, they share in the intimate knowledge
of each other sexually -- becoming "one flesh." This relationship
is to be enjoyed (Proverbs 5), protected (1 Thessalonians 4:3-8),
and celebrated (Song of Solomon) for life (Matthew 19:6).
Holy and Almighty Father, please bless me with strength to live
with integrity and purity in today's sexually charged world. Please
use your Spirit and your Word to instruct, correct, and convict me
as I seek to discover your truth for my relationships and celebrate
your will for my sexuality. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
