“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.
- Ephesians 5:31-32
In God's incomparable wisdom, he designed marriage to mirror Jesus' unending love for his own bride, the redeemed. Those of us who have experienced the grace of God -- how God saved us from our hell-bound life of darkness and sin through the death and resurrection of Jesus and gave us an eternity of glory simply out of love -- know that we could never deserve such a gift.
What glory is in the gospel. He is wonderful.
