COUPLES IN CHRIST
To model God’s design for marriage.
The marriage relationship was the first human institution established by God (Genesis 2:24).
This permanent relationship is complete and whole with one man and one woman becoming one flesh in covenant with each other and God .
What is God’s purpose for marriage? Why is marriage important to God?
The primary reason marriage is significant to God is that marriage is part of His ordained plan to provide the world with a picture of His love for men and women. Marriage becomes the means for married couples to demonstrate their love for God. Marriage is a means of serving and glorifying God.
God established marriage as a covenant, not a contract (Malachi 2:14; Proverbs 2:16-17). It is important to understand the difference between these two.
Three important differences exist:
1. A covenant is based on trust between parties. A contract is based on distrust.
2. A covenant is based on unlimited responsibility. A contract is based on limited liability.
3. A covenant cannot be broken if new circumstances occur. A contract can be voided by mutual consent.
