Genesis: God's Story, Our Story
Genesis 2 | The Body, Pt. 2: Eternity, Eros, and Identity

God created us with bodies, physical human bodies. God’s story for all of history is revealed in our bodies, male and female. We are made in God’s image, but in the union of male and female in the covenant of marriage, there is the possibility of birthing new life–a human being, made in the image of God. In this way we participate in the divine overflow of love and creation in the beginning. We are also erotic creatures, desiring and loving creatures. God our creator designed us this way to point towards him in worship and in anticipation of the eternal union with him that has been the eternal joy of the Trinity. In our bodies, in our sexuality, in our eros, rightly ordered, we are being invited into the divine dance.
