Bladerunner...thank you for your insights as well, I love discussions where we just share with one another and grow from one another.

The more I think about and pray over the passages the more I see them compliment each other.  I would paraphrase the Ecc. passage as we were made for fellowship with God.  If made for fellowship then wouldn't every fiber of our being be drawn to that fellowship?!  And if we are drawn to fellowship wouldn't be also be drawn to restore that original creation?!

Ephesians 5 talks about the marriage relationship especially between Christ and the Church.  In verse 25-27 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.

How precious of a picture of the original creation of man....a creation whose purpose was to be holy, cleansed by the word, radiant, without stain or wrinkle, without blemish and blameless.  As I see it, this is the image of Christ we are told about in Gen. and the restored creation God wants for us, the very reason Christ came.

Yet evil is so strong, we are told we would NOT turn to GOD unless He conditioned our hearts to hear HIS WORD. Only through the hearing of the WORD do we become to believe in our LORD JESUS.

His Love for us is so GREAT and those who believe and are in His Church will live forever by HIS side.  Yes, a Husband and a Wife.   

Have a great evening Lori, got 22 little ones not, seemed like they have slowed down some,,,, Still about 80 something to go.

How are all the little ones Blade?
