So God Created man in his own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.
God created both male and female in His image. From the beginning, God made both man and woman and caused them to fellowship with Him and with each other in the garden. And God gave Eve to Adam to be his wife, and this was for a picture of the Church, the bride of Christ, whom The Father would give to The Son.
O Lord, we know you have created men and women both in Your image and for Your glory. You have given them each their proper strengths and roles. Some you call to serve You as singles, and devote fuller time to Your Kingdom. Others You call to marriage, and this is a picture of Your Love for Your Church. May we all be content with the calling You have called us with.
