Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

“The Lord God… made He a woman, and brought her unto the man” (Gen 2:22).

‘Brought her unto the man’ – This implies that the creation of the woman was not done near Adam.

It was God’s burden and concern to prepare a bride for Adam and she was God’s own selection and perfection. The man was not supposed to be worried about finding a bride for himself. God will do the work of finding a help-mate for us, provided we are in the garden (many go out of the church to marry a wife). It is true Adam could not find a wife for himself anywhere in the garden, but God took charge of the matter. We hear many parents and youngsters saying, “I couldn’t find a suitable person in the church; so I selected a match outside the church.” The problem is that they want a match of their liking.

God has brought us into the Church, the true Garden of God, and He will provide us a help-mate in the Church itself, and not outside it. Let not our own choice hinder God’s plan in our life.

The woman had only one person to love and set her affection on, and that was the man; the man too had only the woman to love. We have only one to love and that is Christ, and Christ too has only one to love, and that is His Church. Therefore those who are not in the true Church of God can never be formed as His Bride.
