Husbands, love your wives just as Christ loved the church and gave his life for it.
Ephesians 5:25 GNB
Once upon a time, there lived three persons. They were one in Love, Truth and Light yet Holy (Hebrew rendition: set apart, unique) in their distinct ways. They were one in motives and in ways, in thought and in function.
One day, Abba (Greek rendition: Father) decided to create a bride for His Son. So he created Adam (Hebrew rendition: man). But He said, “It is not good for man to be alone. I will for Him a suitable helper.” Trinity wanted man to understand love in their own unique way too, so that their mystical union with Christ as their Bridegroom would not be so new a concept to them. Yet still, this union blows our minds of every imagination.
Jesus is the only Human Being in the Trinity. He was born a man, lived as a man, died as a man and ascended as a man. The tomb is still empty. Now He is seated at the Right Hand Side of God as a man. He is the Son of God and the Son of Man. The GodMan. He is the only way we as humans are intertwined with the Divine.
It is by looking unto Him that we understand how God can dwell in man and man in God. He is the Temple of God and so are we. He is the Righteousness of God and so are we. He is the visible image of God (Col 1:15) and so we are. “As He is, so are we in this world”.
“Just as a man left his father and mother to be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh” (Gen 2:24), Jesus did same (Phil 2:6-7) and came to dwell among us (John 1:14); “and His Name shall be called Emmanuel. The GodMan has set up His dwelling place among men. The GodMan came to establish His Kingdom, not around us but within us.
No one will say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or, ‘There it is!’; because the Kingdom of God is within you.”
Luke 17:21 GNB
And now, Christ is married to us all. And He lavishes His Love on us. Not like a Master loving a servant, but as a Husband loving a Wife. We are God’s Partner, intertwined with Him from the beginning of time.
He loves you ❤
