One Flesh

By: Jenifer Metzger

When a person receives an organ transplant, that organ becomes a part of them. It is no longer the organ of someone else. It is no longer outside of the recipient's body. It is now a part of who they are. It is in them. It is them.

Marriage is, in a way, like receiving an organ transplant. No longer is there two, but now one.

And the two will become one flesh.
So they are no longer two, but one flesh.
Mark 10:8

You and your spouse become one. This doesn't mean you lose who you are. Each organ has a different job to do, a different purpose. You and your husband are still different. You each have your own purpose, your own interests. But just as each different organ with their own different purpose has to work together to function properly, you and your husband have to work together to function properly.

Sometimes an organ will be rejected. There are three types of organ rejection: hyperacute rejection, acute rejection and chronic rejection. A rejection simply means the organ recipient's system is rejecting the organ. Instead of everything working together, it is all working against each other. Most of the time, medication is taken to help and then everything begins to function properly. In the same way, sometimes as husband and wife, we begin to work against each other. We begin rejecting one another and everything gets messed up. But if we take the medication, meaning we begin to go to God, get in the Word, and pray together, then everything will begin to function properly.

Marriage doesn't have to be hard if we simply remember that we are one flesh. If we treat our mate in the same loving and respectful way that we hope to be treated and we keep God at the center, then everything will function as one.
