Fascinating Families
Part 1 – A Man, A Woman, A Marriage 
Genesis 2.15-­‐25

Marriage: God's

  • Marriage was God’s idea from the beginning and remains His idea today.
  • Marriage is defined by God as one man and one woman for one lifetime.

Marriage: Design

  • God gives the man responsibilities: providing, protecting, pastoring (v.15-­‐ 17).
  • God creates the woman with a role: complement (v.18-­‐23).
  • Roles as designed by God and functions as life happens are not the same.

Marriage: Math

  • God’s plan for marriage: 1+1=1.
  • Healthy, strong marriages aren’t the result of drift but intentional practices and habits.
  • God gives us two we must continually practice: leaving and cleaving.

Marriage: Covenant

  • Freedom is experienced in the covenant context.
  • God uses this context to make us holy.
  • God has nothing against your happiness, but He’s after your holiness.
