As the Scriptures say, “A man leaves his father and mother to get married, and he becomes like one person with his wife.” This is a great mystery, but I understand it to mean Christ and his church. So each husband should love his wife as much as he loves himself, and each wife should respect her husband.
Marriage is a great mystery. And we find the secret to the mystery in heaven. God created man, and He created woman. God designed a lifelong relationship between a man and a woman that speaks loudly about Jesus and those who belong to Him.
God did not create men and women to be the same. They are two pieces of the puzzle of life that when they come together, life goes on.
Of course, the Bible does not require that anyone marry. But if you do, you display the glory of Heaven to men and women on earth.
Men, when you love your wife you are stepping into the Stream of the joy of heaven. Women, when you respect your husband, you are learning a Secret from heaven.
So marriage is one of Satan's prime targets. He wants to destroy the most beautiful picture ever painted on earth!
A beautiful marriage makes the most beautiful sunset pale in comparison.
“Thank You, Jesus, for allowing us to experience being part of the picture of You and Your Bride. May Your Holy Name be praised now and forever. Amen.”
