God created man in His own image,
in the image of God He created him;
male and female He created them
Isn’t it interesting that when God shares that He created us in His image He shares that He created us male and female. It doesn’t say in the image of God He created them with reasoning power and creative ability and power and might… no just simply male and female He created them.
The Bible mentions only gender in reference to our divine design.
Why? Because the one true God is a social being… And the unique distinction between maleness and femaleness invites us to be social beings too. Our male and female differences are what create our craving for yada. We wouldn’t long to be known if we were all alike, right? The experience of being known means we start at a place of being unknown. This places authentic humanity and sexuality in the context of male and female diversity…
…the secular worldview declares that to be human is to be an animal and, therefore, we can follow any physical or instinctual urges we might have. But a biblical worldview tells us that to be human is to be- as a distinct female or male- the image of God. His “statue.” When people look at us, they see Him.
That’s pretty holy.
Any other view of gender is little more than one of the Villian’s battlegrounds for eliminating our belief in the existence of God.
In our world today I am saddened most by this “unisex” push… The recent article about the women who had a little child and hid this child’s gender from them and others so that the child would not be influenced by their sexuality is absolute insanity to me. In truth this child came out of the womb either distinctly female or male. These women did not allow this child to naturally evolve into the child’s choice sexuality. No, they purposely set this child up to be confused… not clear. They chose to manipulate this child’s emotional being at the child’s very core…
This child is only one of many deeply wounded children that are being brought up to believe such lies. Oh, how we must be about our Father’s business! Oh how our world needs truth… how this world needs real love.
It doesn’t matter what surgeries you go through… it doesn’t matter how long or short you wear you hair. You might can reconstruct your body, but you can not reconstruct your soul. You are not male trapped in a female body and you are not female trapped in a male body. You are a human being created distinctly male or distinctly female under the attack of the Liar and Murderer from the beginning. Don’t submit and surrender to his lies… submit and surrender to your Christ! Oh, please I beg you… believe HIM! He is trustworthy!
The male and female are two distinct, independent humans, but when they come together, they are one, or in the Hebrew, echad.
For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother,
and be joined to his wife; and they shall become echad flesh.
Guess where else we see this type of union?
Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is echad!
Let us make man in Our image…
male and female He created them.
You see God is distinctly three (Father, Son, Spirit), and yet in divine communion He is echad. Coming together in the act of sex makes us echad. Coming together as male and female, joined in fellowship with each other and God, we are echad.
Ladies, sex is spiritual.
Why do you think it Satan uses it so? Why do you think it was always involved in the worship of false gods? Think about it.
If humanity serves as your religion, then sex becomes an act of worship. On the other hand, if God is the object of your religion, then romantic love becomes an unmistakable pointer, a rumor of transcendences as loud as any we hear on earth.
Today your challenge is to celebrate you femaleness! Today your challenge is to help your daughters celebrate their femaleness and help your sons celebrate their maleness
Not in the worlds way… but in God’s divine design way.
