Marriage to Glorify God
Please use the Banner of Truth UK site. None of our family relations will be right unless we fear God. In marriage sin and reconciliation operate in its communion, in the fellowship of the ring. We love our wives as Christ loved the church. There is a redemptive structure to marriage as the grace of God shapes two people. One of the spheres in which that glory operates is in the conjugal relationships of marriage. The relationships of a husband and a wife reflect the image of God, something that belongs to the very nature of the Trinity itself.
What a stupid question! How would they know? Christian marriage is giving you the practice of fidelity over a lifetime in which you can look back upon the marriage and call it love. It is a hard discipline over many years. No issues in the modern world seem to be pressing the Church with as much force as those surrounding sex and marriage. The so-called Sexual Revolution has, for the most part, succeeded in radically changing how our culture understands both matters.
What are you praying for your marriage? Francis and Lisa Chan, married for 21 years and parents of seven children, encourage husbands and wives to fervently pray for one another and seek a marriage that is glorifying to the Lord.
i hate his her ex by alex cooper
You have been called of God to lay down your life for this daughter of his—period. My brother, are you glorifying God in your marriage? What evidence do you have this is so? Do you love her like Christ loves the Church? Let me ask this question another way: would you want Christ to love the Church like you love your wife?
If that was the case then—in the sober, Jewish world in which they lived—how much more will the magnificence of marriage in the mind of God seem unintelligible in a modern Western culture. The fact that we live in a society that can defend two men or two women entering a sexual relationship and, with wild inconceivability, call it marriage shows that the collapse of our culture into debauchery and anarchy is probably not far away. I mention this cultural distortion of marriage in the hopes that it might wake you up to consider a vision of marriage higher and deeper and stronger and more glorious than anything this culture—or perhaps you yourself—ever imagined. The greatness and glory of marriage is beyond our ability to think or feel without divine revelation and without the illuminating and awakening work of the Holy Spirit. The world cannot know what marriage is without learning it from God.
