Matters of … Marriage

August 6, 2017 Ephesians 5:22-33 Download: Audio Notes

Marriage is that wonderful union designed and declared by our Creator God for our good. But it doesn’t always feel so good does it? Two people, uniquely different, trying to be one unified family for life. Facing all the internal challenges of dealing with differing opinions, goals, and dreams and all the while facing the challenges of work, bills, sickness, and sometimes kids.

But God’s plan is wonderful. A plan that will show off the glory of God to the world. In the book of Ephesians, Paul taught wives and husbands how to have a Christ-like marriage that reflected Christ’s relationship with His church. We can have a Christ-like marriage that reflects Christ’s relationship with His church. How can we have a Christ-like marriage? The text gives two ways to having a Christ-like marriage.
