God Created Two for One
Scripture: Read Genesis 2:23-24 “At last!” Adam exclaimed. “She is part of my own flesh and bone! She will be called ‘woman,’ because she was taken out of a man.” This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.
Thought: When the unity candle is lit at a wedding, it symbolizes a unique relationship. Joining bride and groom in such a way that the two become one. God intended to bond married people together in a way different from any other relationship and it is good. God doesn’t create junk. He knew what he was doing when he joined your two hearts together, long before you ever knew. You are now one, go and live a ‘good’ life together, using God’s word as your handbook.
Action: Discuss the preparation before your wedding? How did you feel? Discuss your wedding day. Did you have an ordained pastor perform the ceremony; Did you have it in a church, outdoors or some other venue? Who attended your day of matrimonial celebration? Do you remember how in love you were? The honeymoon and the good life you were looking forward to?
Prayer: Dear God, thank you for choosing _________ to be my beloved spouse. Help me to give and receive blessings each day that shows our unity of love. Protect us and give us peace all the days of our lives.
