“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”  [Genesis 1:27]

The greatest diversity in the entire universe is seen in that Adam is both male and female!  Broken yet blessed and made whole in Christ.  ”For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.”  [1 Corinthians 15:22]

Only in the Spirit of Christ are the two, male and female, reconciled.  ”…through him to reconcile to himself all things…     by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.” [Colossians 1:19]

Only in the mind of Christ are the two, male and female, recognized with wisdom and understanding.  ”For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him?”  But we have the mind of Christ.” [1 Corinthians 2:16]

Only in the uniqueness of Christ are the two, male and female, revealed in uniqueness”He fashions their hearts individually…”  [Psalm 33:15]

Only in submission to Christ are the two, male and female, restored as equal partners with Christ. ”Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” [Romans 8:17]
