In commemoration of The International Women’s Day it is ” awesome good ” to celebrate the Woman as a sound and sustainable “ ANCHOR ” for a prosperous & joyful life partnership in a family, a community, and the World as a whole.
The Bible says, that the Woman was created at the ” image of God “. This is her status and responsibilities as highlighted in Genesis 1: 27 – 28 ” So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him male and female He created them. And God blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it ( using all its vast resources in the service of God and man ); and have dominion over fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and over every living creature that moves upon the earth. “
However, endowed by her responsibilities, the female dared the audacity to increase her vision without God’s consent, and enable ” humanity ” to fail. The Bible echoes this in Genesis 3: 1 – 6 “… And the woman saw that the tree was good ( suitable, pleasant ) for food and that it was delightful to look at, and a tree to be desired in order to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave some also to her ” husband “, and he ate. “
Then as an ” emblem ” of life – The woman was elected by God’s Divine Mercy to introduce Salvation and restored God’s family through the birth, the life & passion of our Father Jesus Christ on earth.The Bible says in Galatians 4: 4 – 5 ” But when the proper time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born subject to ( the regulations of ) the law, To purchase the freedom of ( to ransom, to redeem, to atone for ) those who were subject to the law, that we might be adopted and have sonship conferred upon us ( and be recognized as God’s sons. )”.
Furthermore, Jesus Christ, Our Glorious Father, allowed Women to be the FIRST WITNESSES of His resurrection. The Bible revealed in John 20: 1 – 2 ” …So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, whom Jesus ( tenderly ) loved, and said to them, They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him. “
Verily! Verily! From Genesis to to-day, the Woman have been a “ character ” or ” stamp ” for the vivacity of life. In order words, from the Divine institution of marriage; women have been ” THE INSPIRATION OF HUMAN HAPPINESS “.
The Bible reveals this truth in Genesis 2: 18 ” Now the Lord God said, it is not good ( sufficient, satisfactory ) that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper meet ( suitable, adapted, complementary ) for him. ” In that context, God have sealed the expression of intimate love IN Proverbs 5: 15 – 20 ” ….drink waters out of your own cistern ( of a pure marriage relationship ), and fresh running waters out of your own well…Confine yourself to your own life, let your children be for you alone…Let your fountain ( of human life ), and rejoice in the wife of your youth…Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant doe ( tender, gentle, attractive ) – Let her bosom satisfy you at all times, and always be transported with delight in her love…“
Finally, Jesus Christ, Our Almighty & Glorious Father said :… But He said, Blessed ( happy and to be envied ) rather are those who hear the Word of God and obey and practice it! ” Luke 11: 27 – 28 “
