Marriage is a divinely appointed picture, a canvas on which God paints a masterpiece to exhibit the glorious reality of the relationship of the ages: the relationship between Christ and his bride, the church. From the beginning, God chose the home to be the place where he would most vividly depict a relationship that would not be revealed for thousands of years.
And so each family is a canvas on which God depicts an even greater relationship. Every husband is called to portray the love that Christ has for his bride and every wife is called to display the honor which the church offers to her bridegroom.
But how can people view the masterpiece when the canvas has been distorted and the picture of reality has been changed? How can the lost appreciate Christ’s relationship with the church when marriages are defaced and families are vandalized?
Don’t miss this vital series on family and what it means to be filled with the Holy Spirit with our lives being lived in submission to one another.
