The Bible says in Gen. 2:18-24 “And the LORD God said, It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to ever beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had take from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”
As God created this universe we live in, down to the smallest details, He saw that Adam was alone and said that this was not good (the first thing that wasn’t good). After seeing this, God performed the first surgery and brought forth a woman (from Adam) to be Adam’s wife.
The first institution God gave to mankind, the first marriage. What a beautiful seen that must have been, when Adam and Eve saw each other for the first time!
We all picture a perfect love, a perfect family, (spouse and children) and have dreams about how it should be. We soon begin to realize however, that a family takes work, it’s a struggle, there is so much to learn.
Grace Independent Baptist Church has a desire to reach and minister to families. One of the ways that we do this is by conducting an annual Family Conference during the month of April. We invite you to be a part and look forward with anticipation as we see our homes strengthened.
