I've attended 2 marriages in a day, which was last saturday. I've got an important point that what had the pastor shared in that two sermons...
Firstly, he talks about why women is created. The bible said that:
[And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. Gen2:18]
and later on, the Lord created women from man. Well, what was the orriginal purpose was God's creation of women? Is to help the man! See? "I will make him an help meet for him"... Well, it's the only purpose of women, as a helper? of man?
Not exactly. The "helper" in this verse can be described as "support"! Whatever the husband do, the wife will support him. It also somehow pointed out that man can't live ALONE! He needs help! So, dear wives in the world, don't think you are useless in your family! Absolutely no! Man can't lives without you! See? The bible verse said that "it is no good that the man should be alone..." Therefore, being supportive is a sign that show you love him!
[And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; Gen 2:21]
Why the Lord took the rib? not bones from the head nor leg nor any other parts of the man? The pastor said there's one japanese theologist said this:
[If God took the bone from the head to create women,
women will think to conquer man's mind;
If God took the bone from the head to creat women,
man will think to step on women;
then why God took rib to create "her"?
Because rib is the bone that close to "his" heart. This of course meaning man shall protect their women from harms! and love her with all your heart! cause the Lord took your rib which close to heart and you protect her meaning you are protecting your heart! Your sweet heart!]
In the bible, Paul said this:
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
