Thoughts from the book of Genesis
Adam and Eve
From Genesis in the Garden of Eden: When God came looking for Adam and Eve, they were hiding because after sinning they were ashamed to be in His presence. When we wrong someone we tend to hide from him or her. Sin is wronging God. We need to confess our sins immediately, asking forgiveness so we don’t hide from Him. And we need to be specific – not just say, “Forgive my sins.”
Creation of Woman
The love between a man and woman; stronger than death, stronger than the tie to one’s parents, this drive to one anther that does not cease until it again becomes flesh in the child. It comes from the fact that God took woman from man, that they were originally one flesh. They come back together as one flesh in marriage.
