Lesson: I am a Women of God

Scripture of the Week: ""It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." (Gen. 2:18)

Bible Story: The Creation of Eve (Genesis Chapter 2)

Breif Summary: God created the world and man, the masterpiece seems complete. Yet the Lord says that something is not good, not right. "Something is missing.. and that something is Eve." Woman. She is the final work of God. We are not an afterthought. Not some "nice addition". No, she fills a place nothing else can fill. The world wasn't complete with out Eve; without you!

Reflections: As you read Genesis 2, consider the following questions:
What were Eve's accomplishments? What are yours?
What were Eve's strengths? What are yours?
What were Eve's weaknesses? What are yours?
What does it mean to be human? What are our qualities and limitations?
How are we created in "God's image"?
What have we learned from Eve in the Bible?

Application Steps: Read The Creation of Eve every day this week. Let it soak into your heart, mind and soul and become a living reality in your life. Use one of your strengths to grow closer to God. Tell a friend about a weakness you found, ask them to pray for you. Take a half an hour or so to your self, go look at God's creation and say to yourselve, "The whole, vast world was incomplete without me. Creation reached its finishing touch in me."
