"He's my other half."
"We're like two puzzle-pieces."
"We complete eachother."
We hear these phrases often when two people are in love. They feel more complete - like what seemed to be missing is now present.
I think it feels this way because men and women have different roles to play and they each speak of different characteristics of God, the Creator.
I believe God set it up this way for a purpose... that this completion of person speaks of a universal truth. God started it in the very beginning.
Genesis 1:27 - "So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them."
He created male and female each in His image. Aspects of GOD portrayed in each one.
Men and women each embody different facets of God's character. Then, when a man and a woman come together as one, a more complete picture of the Creator is displayed.
A man brings strength, wisdom, and leadership.
A woman represents beauty, mystery, tenderness, mercy.
Though I have yet to personally experience it, because I know God, I can say this.
This is the Power of Intimacy -
Man and Woman - each reflecting God's image - come together as one. This united team is unstoppable.
