DISCOVER GOD’S DESIGN FOR MARRIAGE
We must understand that every marriage is intended to be a masterpiece reflecting THE marriage between God and His people.
Marriage is the most frequent metaphor used in the Bible to describe God’s relationship with His people. In fact, writing to the Ephesians, Paul called marriage a “profound mystery” because the man represents Christ, the groom, while the woman represents His bride, the church.
The marital union of husband and wife is a sacred reflection of the gospel itself.
COMMIT TO A COVENANT MARRIAGE
Today’s civil marriages are much like business contracts – easy to get into and easy to get out of.
God’s covenant with His people was a promise to remain eternally faithful even if His people were not faithful in return.
In covenant marriage, both spouses are committed for a lifetime—in sickness and health, for better or worse. They do not threaten divorce or consider it as an option.
Gives a biblical vision for sexual intimacy and marriage and tackles difficult questions related to human sexuality.
Encourages married couples to pursue the joys and pleasures of sexual intimacy.
PURSUE A PASSIONATE MARRIAGE
God calls us to pursue a passionate, thriving marriage. The Song of Solomon expresses the kind of love, joy and celebration God designed for marriage.
That passion is built on much more than infatuation and sexual desire. It is rooted in the physical, emotional and spiritual intimacy God created couples to experience as a foretaste of the eternal unity, communion and intimacy we can have with God.
Prioritize a routine like date nights to fan the flame of intimacy in your marriage.
BECOME HEROIC IN MARRIAGE
Christ made the ultimate sacrifice to rescue humanity.
Writing to the Ephesians, Paul connected Christ’s sacrifice directly to marriage: “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her” (Ephesians 5:25) and “Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands” (Ephesians 5:24).
In other words, mutual submission to one another requires giving up our own interests to heroically serve the other person.
