Men and Women: In the Beginning
Topic: Relationships Verse: Genesis 2:10–2:25, Genesis 1:28, Psalm 115:9–115:11, Genesis 3:16
What is God's design for men and women? Why did God create human beings male and female - two genders in the first place?
Ezer Kenego - what does it mean? helper/companion/help meet??? or sustainer - life-giver? Ezer=life saver - kenego=alongside
Help with what? One of the big reasons God made human beings was to experience community - God loves community
1. we're made in God's image
2. we're created Male and Female
Genesis 1:28 Creation Mandate
Does being made first = being the boss?
Genesis 3 - Fall and curse
Will each of us be willing to recognize where we are contributing to the battle of the genders and where we are partnering with the curse instead of freedom?
Will you allow God's Word to form your own understanding and attitude about the role of relationship with men and women?
