Two Halves Make A Whole - August 2019

Many things have two parts to make a whole.  A candle needs wax and a wick to make light.  A bow needs an arrow to hit the target.  A CD needs a CD-player to make beautiful music.  A BBQ will not cook without gas or coals.  And a hose is just a pipe without water.  

So many things need a counterpart before they can become truly effective.

God designed man and woman as two parts that come together to work as an effective whole.  Quite often, we will only start functioning when we are connected to our counterpart.  What one lacks, the other has in abundance and vice versa.  Only as a whole do we start realizing our purpose and full potential.  God created marriage so greater things could be accomplished.  However, we must remember, in order for this to happen both parts must be in working order.  (See Ecclesiastics 4:9 and Ephesians 5:31)

It is the same with us and God.

Only as we connect with Him can we realise our FULL potential in life. After all, He created us with this very thing in mind. To live in relationship with Him and together to accomplish many good, beneficial and worthy works in life. (See Ephesians 2:10; 1 Corinthians 3:9)
