The Journey with Ron Moore

Community: What is it? | Genesis 2:24

Genesis 2:24
For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

Connection in marriage is the bond that ties a couple together for life. Today’s passage describes the essential ingredients for that connection.

Leave: In marriage, total allegiance must be to each other. Many marriages (or second or third) struggle because someone didn’t leave mommy and daddy.

United: This word is used to describe permanence, an unwavering commitment. If divorce is an option, it may well become a reality.

One flesh: The one flesh relationship describes…

  • Spiritual Oneness: Growing together in love for Christ. “Unequally yoked” doesn’t cut it.
  • Physical Oneness: An exclusive, intimate commitment. No other options!
  • Emotional Oneness: Commitment to exclusive feelings. No emotional affairs.
  • Oneness of Mission: Going the same direction at the same time for the same reasons…not two independent strangers sharing the same address.

God’s instruction on marriage is clear. The failure to follow it takes a couple on one rocky and unbiblical ride.

Father, help us to know, understand, and apply your instruction on marriage. The world desperately needs to see what it looks like when a husband and wife are sold out to you and each other. In Jesus name. Amen.
