The ability to discern deeply and acutely is the definition of penetration. In order for our interracial relationships within the context of marriage to reach interracial marital maturation we need to penetrate three areas of life throughly. The three areas of penetration is the mind, soul, and body. When we look at the first command of God, we see these areas revealed in our love for Him.
Jesus declared, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” (Matthew 22:37). These areas are necessary for complete triple penetration to succeed in cultivating interracial marital maturation.
When we look at the heart of our relationship we come to the pulse, this is where the life of the relationship begins. This happens when you see her. “Now Samson went down to Timnah, and saw a woman in Timnah of the daughters of the Philistines. So he went up and told his father and mother, saying, “I have seen a woman in Timnah of the daughters of the Philistines; now therefore, get her for me as a wife” (Judg 14:1-2). I believe in love at first sight. Samson saw this woman and knew in his heart she is the one. This is the first penetration.
The second penetration is the soul. This is the invisible connection that binds you. It is the cord that connects you at the spiritual level. This is where your essence connects and you can feel what she feels and her experience is your experience. This is where she feels the safest around you and she reveals herself and her character is exposed. A guarded woman is a woman that has not been penetrated in the soul. Penetration of the soul is the beautiful cord that binds you. Nothing interferes with your connection because this connection cannot be seen.
The third penetration is the mind. This is the center of choice. The cognitive process that makes choices based on the heart and soul. This is where you choose to love in the midst of unlovable situations. This where you choose to use patience in a stressful situations. This is where you look at God’s law and move in obedience, even when your soul feels pain and your heart has been wounded. This is where forgiveness empowers the other two and makes you mature.
Interracial Marital Maturation requires all three. If anyone one of these things are missing from the relationship then you will experience immaturity in your relationship. The strongest of the three is the mind. It is powerful enough to help carry the other two, but you will never reach complete interracial marital maturation. When you read the penetrations and look within your current relationship you should see whether or not your relationship is triple penetrated.
