God Has Given You to Each Other

Third, God has given you to each other. Last three verses in Gen. 2:22- 24,

And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

Just a while ago, April’s father, Felix, was holding his daughter down the aisle. Then he gave her away to the groom. It was only last Sunday that Felix had his blood pressure shoot up. I’m not sure why his blood pressure went up. I think it is because of one of two things. Either it was because he was tired driving or because his daughter will soon get married. (I remember my father-in-law had a stroke a few months before his daughter married me.)

Note what God the Matchmaker did in the first marriage. God brought Eve to the man.

How did Adam react? He was ecstatic. How do I know? It’s in the Hebrew words, zō˒t happa˓am, which means, “this at last!” Adam was saying excitedly, “At last, here is one of my own kind. Bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh.”

Dandin and April, God knows exactly what you need. You need each other. Because you need each other, God gives you each other.
