some things just go together
It's a simple fact of life that some things just plain go together. Things like salt and pepper, bread and butter, bees and honey, love and marriage, husband and wife. Things like milk and cookies, bacon and eggs, soup and crackers, burgers and fries, and of course, peanut butter and jelly.
Some things just go together. And this is not just limited to earthly things -
there are things like that in our spiritual lives as well.
Things like saints and sinners, water and word, bread and wine, body and blood, word and sacrament.
People in the Bible like Adam and Eve, Noah and the Ark, David and Goliath, Jonah and the Whale, Peter and Paul, James and John, Mary and Martha.
There are some people and things that were just meant to go together. Even things previously far apart.
For although we were once separated from God by sin and death, because of the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, now even God and Man go well together.
