One Flesh, Not One Bone!
“… and they two shall become one flesh”! Remember Adam said, “this is the bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh.” But in unity, they became one flesh and not one bone! What’s the implication of that? It simply means that even though you are one with your spouse, your bones are not fused together! You both still have different thoughts! Which is why there must be good communication in the home, your spouse can’t read your mind explicitly! Wrong assumptions ruin relationships! Don’t say he or she is supposed to know! You both need to communicate effectively! You are one flesh and not one bone! (Genesis 2:24)
Naked but Not Ashamed!
“and they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.” Of, course a man and his wife should not be ashamed to see their own nakedness! Otherwise, why are they married? But the kind of nakedness depicted here shows their level of simplicity and obedience to God. In marriage it depicts transparency! The husband and the wife must be opened to each other, no deceit, no secrecy! Remember this was the marriage Jesus while addressing the issues of divorce was referring to when he said, “in the beginning it was not so”! My dear Single, if you are not ready to be transparent to your spouse, then please remain Single! (Genesis 2:25)
Don’t Be Naked!
Though you were born naked… You don’t have to walk the street naked! Lots of young people today are parading the street in seductive attires all in the name of fashion or hunting for a spouse! Listen, the way you dressed, is the way you will be addressed! Adam and his wife were naked because they had no clothes! Besides, they were just two in the garden with the rest of the animals. Dress decently to cover your nakedness! Don’t post semi-nude pictures on social media! Don’t lose your self’s worth and dignity while trying to win the approval of others! A word is enough for the wise! (Still on Gen. 2: 25)
Now the Serpent (Part 1)
Adam and his wife were living happily in the garden until the Serpent (Satan) showed up! The woman yielded to the deceit of the devil, she disobeyed God by eating the forbidden fruit, her husband too was deceived, and they both fell into sin! Come to think of it; the Serpent never showed up in the garden until the woman was created! The devil didn’t get Adam until he got married! Satan is still in the business of attacking homes! The devil’s greatest weapon is DECEIT, he never forced the Woman, all he did was to start a conversation and offer suggestion! Unfortunately, the woman didn’t get God’s instructions right. It is not enough to listen to sermons! Study the BIBLE yourself and get it RIGHT …to be continued (Genesis 3)
Now the Serpent (Part 2)
See exactly what got the woman down in the garden: “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it”- Gen 3:6. Let me connect it with 1 John 2:16 to see the similarity. “For all that is in the world, the lust of the FLESH, and the lust of the EYES, and the PRIDE OF LIFE is not of the Father but is of the world.” The same formula the Devil used in the garden, He is still using till date, He tried the same formula with Jesus, but failed! Don’t allow the Devil to deceive you with the LUST OF THE FLESH, the LUST OF THE EYES & the PRIDE OF LIFE! Be wise!
God bless you!
