Eve was created as a suitable helper for Adam â€“ a â€śhelp meetâ€ť for him. But what does Eve do to help?
Genesis 2 shows us very clearly that the woman was created for the man. This may take a variety of forms. Scripture does not prescribe a certain set of â€śgender roles.â€ť
In fact, gender roles change dramatically from the days of Ruth (Ruth 4:3), when a widow could not control her deceased husband's property, to the days of Lydia in the book of Acts, who is called a â€śseller of purple goodsâ€ť (Acts 16:14). As the economy changes, so also the various roles of men and women change.
But whatever form this takes, the woman was created for man and her function finds expression in connection with him.
Paul makes it clear that neither is independent of the other â€“ because â€śas woman was made from man, so man is now born of woman.â€ť The woman was created for the man â€“ but the man is incomplete without the woman.
Great Sermon! Dear Pastor, Thank you for your message. I learnt something new today from you. The blessing of multiplication directly and uniquely connected with the woman and the church of Christ. God bless you, your family and ministry, in Jesus name, amen.
In Christ alone, Lia Leigh.
