Stuck: Foundation To Passion
"So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them."
"The man 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.” For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed."
Four Foundational Principles:
1. Men and women are created by God. You do not define yourself or know yourself by looking inside. You know yourself by looking to God’s word.
2. We are all equally created in God’s image
3. God is the creator of passion.
4. Passion is sharing the image of God with the other person in oneness.
Ladies, your honey is your beauty. It is from God, not men. No man can make you beautiful or add to your value. Men, your honey is your strength. It is from God, not from her. No woman can make you strong or add to your value.
Passion grows when I want to follow a man who's first adventure is Christ. My beauty is what he wants, and he can have all of it if he will leave his father and mother and use his strength to be one with me.
Passion grows when on my adventure, I invite her to come. Christ being my first adventure calls me to share all of my strength to bring out her beauty by protecting her, providing for her, cherishing her.
