This is the first installment of my summer 2014 series “Let’s Be Real Here,” that shines the light of Holy Spirit revelation on relationships and on the dysfunction we love and that our society promotes and profits from. I’m addressing these issues here because I’ve learned quite a bit - and am still learning, of course - about relationships that please Father. There are several behaviors that we exhibit that we assume are godly, but are not. If we want to experience the fullness of abundant life in Christ we must behave as salt and light; we have to stand out and show the world there’s peace and success within committed, loving relationships that allow men to be spiritual leaders of the home and women to come alongside them for the glory of God.
God created everything for a reason. Everything. In Genesis we learn that everything They created was good. If you want to play the game and bring satan up, this isn't the time or place. Everything the Godhead does has divine purpose built into it. They created Adam to enjoy the creations of the world and to fellowship with Them. They created Eve because Adam needed a skin-and-bone companion to enhance his divine purpose.
Before Eve, Adam worked, ate and communed with the Spirit of God. That wasn't enough purpose for this man created in God's imagination and formed with His hand. After Eve, Adam's purpose included procreation, multiplication and exercising dominion in addition to communing with the Spirit of God. Adam and Eve knew what their divine purposes were because they experienced regular communion with Father.
