God’s Plan
Genesis 2:22-24
 22 Then the LORD God made a woman from
the rib he had taken out of the man, and he
brought her to the man.
 23 The man said,
 “This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called ‘woman,’
for she was taken out of man. ”
 24 That is why a man leaves his father and
mother and is united to his wife, and they
become one flesh.
(NIV)
1Cor. 7:1-11 (NIV)
Now for the matters you wrote about: It is good for a man
not to marry. 2 But since there is so much immorality,
each man should have his own wife, and each woman
her own husband. 3 The husband should fulfill his marital
duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband.
4 The wife’s body does not belong to her alone but also to
her husband. In the same way, the husband’s body does
not belong to him alone but also to his wife. 5 Do not
deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a
time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then
come together again so that Satan will not tempt you
because of your lack of self-control.
6I
say this as a concession, not as a command. 7 I wish
that all men were as I am. But each man has his own gift
from God; one has this gift, another has that.
8 Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good
for them to stay unmarried, as I am. 9 But if they cannot
control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to
marry than to burn with passion.
10 To the married I give this command (not I, but the
Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. 11 But
if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be
reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not
divorce his wife.
God’s Plan
 18 The LORD God said, “It is not good
for the man to be alone. I will make a
helper suitable for him.”
 24 That is why a man leaves his father
and mother and is united to his wife,
and they become one flesh.

The profound mystery!
31 For this reason a man will leave his father
and mother and be united to his wife, and the
two will become one flesh. 32 This is a
profound mystery-- but I am talking about
Christ and the church. 33 However, each one
of you also must love his wife as he loves
himself, and the wife must respect her
husband.
