God's Order for Marriage

. . .Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Matthew 19:4-5

One man and one woman makes a marriage. Aside from the union of Christ and the believer, there is no better union on earth. A man and a woman. This is God's order.

I fully agree with this wisdom. One man and one woman.

you shared,
the union of Christ and the believer, there is no better union on earth

It is an type and shadow of things to come, with the church as the bride of Christ.

So true. Women and men were created to represent Christ and the believer, and to teach us about our relationship to Him. Therefore nothing else will work or makes sense.


Vicki said...

Amen, Maxine.

Seems this truth bears much repeating in this day and age when many attempt to redefine marriage. God bless you, my friend. I'm enjoying catching up a bit with you here tonight.

Thanks for visiting on this post all my friends. We have much to grieve about as we read our news reports, don't we?
