October 10, 2018 – Men & Women are from Eden! (Part I)

Do you have any friends in a frustrated relationship, or have you ever been in one? Sometimes frustration follows when we have not operated something well. For example, your cell phone may not work properly after being used in the rain. Similarly, God, who created us male and female, knows in what ways we will be happiest together. This happiness is an opportunity that we lost with the Fall of Adam and Eve, but one that Jesus restored with His death and resurrection. Through his grace, by recognizing and accepting that God created us, and did so with a plan in mind and not accidentally, we can find the happiness that is otherwise elusive.
