The Genius of God in Creating the Sexes

Posted in Bible with tags , , , on July 9, 2012 by Alex

Today I found myself astounded in the way God has created the two sexes.  I don’t get these insights every day.  I just remember thinking… wow, I’ve been taking these little things for granted.  Why not just one sex?  God has designed us in such a way that we need each other.  Why not more than two?  God didn’t want factions.  He wanted men and women together.  Not rock, paper, scissors in a perpetual war.

Men and women fit together.  They complement each other.  Heck, they’re even shaped for each other.

I am simply blown away at how the sexes’ forms, temperaments, interests, and functions harmonize with one another.  Like a violin playing a chord.  Or, under a certain light, the Christ and His bride the Church.

The Lord made creation good.  And at its climax in the making of man and woman, the Lord called  it “very good” (Gen 1:31).  He really is a genius!

What, dear reader, has God done that left you suddenly and without warning surprised?
