The same way the woman was taken out of the man, the church was taken out of Christ.
The very fact that the woman was taken from the man means that the woman is created from the same material as the man. So whatever makes up the man makes up the woman.
In this light, it is sad when people try to make one superior and the other inferior. One was created from the other so they are the same. Males and females have different characteristics. Note that these characteristics are different in such a way that they complement each other.
The difference is in such a way so as to ensure that there is a fitting of the two people into one to create life. This is clearly depicted in the sexual organs of the male and female. They are created in such a way that they can fit to create life. So it is said that males and females are mirror opposite.
Males and females are just different, one is not superior to the other. People as we are, we love comparison. We tend to understand everything through comparison. In this case, one is not better than the other. Both males and femals are made of the same material and actually perform better when they agree to work together.
It is the same with the church and Christ. Because we came out of Christ, we have been made of the same material as Christ. The very ability of the Christ is in us because we came from him. The glory of God is seen when the church agrees to the finished work of Christ.
The church is the original idea of God even before the foundation of the world.
NLT Ephesians 1:4-5
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.
If the church is the original idea of God, then the woman just as the man is also the original idea of God…
