Woman Created From Man For Man

On Sunday mornings we have been covering the subject of women in worship.
I came across this article that I thought might be helpful.

The Creation Of Woman
Joel R. Beeke

Genesis 2:18–24 graphically describes God’s creation of the first woman. It begins
with the LORD God’s remarkable statement, “It is not good that man should be
alone.” The negative, “not good,” is emphatic. Until now, God has done
everything good; He has pronounced His benediction upon all of His creation.
Here, for the first time, we find that something is lacking. Without female
companionship and a partner in reproduction, man could not fully realize his
humanity. Out of this need comes the creation of the woman who will be Adam’s
wife and companion.

The creation of woman in Genesis 2 has far-reaching consequences. It sets
the foundation for:

1. the relationship of a husband and a wife within marriage,
2. the relationship of Jesus Christ, the Husband of His church, and the church as
Christ’s bride,
3. the function of a man and a woman within the church.

This article addresses primarily on the first of these.
