What is Marriage?

After many years of teaching, preaching, and counseling on God’s purpose and plan for marriage, I have a lot to say on the subject. Often I summarize it all into this sentence…

Marriage is

…a holy covenant

…initiated by God

…conditioned on an irrevocable promise

…to pursue oneness

…with an imperfect person

…of the opposite sex

…for a lifetime

…for the glory of God.

Whatever else our decaying culture may say, God’s definition has never changed.  Are you allowing God to define your ideas about what marriage is?
