In Ephesians 5, Paul ties the mystery of Christ loving the church to the earthly picture of male-female sexuality and marriage. The relationship between a husband and wife is powerfully linked to the story of Christ and his church-bride(Ephesians 5:25-33). God created male and female to foreshadow and TESTIFY about THAT amazing relationship and event. That’s one of the main reasons He made us male & female and created marriage. Marriage was designed to reflect the grace of Christ, not to reflect ourselves. There’s a saying that goes something like “marriage is to make us Holy, not happy”. I think that pretty much hits the nail on the head. Yes, marriage can be happy, healthy, and fun, but it’s not designed to give us(humans) glory. Marriage was intended to reflect the beauty and grace of Christ.
Since our gender was created to tell the magnificent story of God. Ladies, your womanhood is ultimately not about you. It’s about displaying the glory of God and His powerful, redemptive plan.
