Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. (Genesis 2:7)
…the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. (Genesis 2:22)
“She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24)
…the man and his wife were both naked… (Genesis 2:25)
Men and women were not created to be alone. Their bodies reveal this truth. How?
…they shall become one flesh.
The term “one flesh” is sexual in nature. A man enters a woman. And through that union of the male and female body — through the two becoming one — a third body is created.
What is the “third body” that is created?
What does the naked body reveal about a person’s humanity?
That human beings were not made to be alone. (Genesis 2:18)
That human beings were made for unity.
That human beings were made to love, and be loved in return. (Genesis 1:28)
That human beings were made to enjoy what God has created. (Genesis 2:15)
Because human beings were created by God, who is love personified.
God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. (Genesis 1:27)
Through being naked, a person experiences a freedom, inner peace, and joy that they wouldn’t experience clothed. (Genesis 1:31)
