The preeminence of Christ.

My favorite thing to study in the Bible is actually not a thing. In the Scripture I love to study Christ most of all.  The gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is what absorbs me in my ministry of His word as a Christian and as a minister. (I Tim.4:13-16, 2 Tim.4:1-8) I wish the study of Christ would absorb me even more. I very much feel a kinship with the apostle Paul that said, But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Gal.6:14, Rom.15:20, Gal.1:11, I Cor.1:17) All true Believers have the same love of Christ. Sometimes more. Sometimes less. Someday soon, perfectly.

The subject of marriage.

Of course, the Bible is a bottomless treasure of good things from our good God. (Jas.1:17) There are other treasures that also captivate me. One such truth is the truth of marriage. I love to study what God in His word says on the subject of marriage. God has much to say. We should listen.

The abuse of marriage.

I do believe that the church and the world need to recapture God’s view on marriage.  An honest look around both in the church and out of the church proves without debate that God’s standard of marriage is trampled on and treated like an outdated suit of clothes. Or worse, as a positive evil. (Isa.5:20)

We live in a day where sexual immorality, almost of every kind, is so common that it is treated as normal. Things that would have made people blush or at least keep to themselves are now the stuff of our entertainment and our daily conversation. (Jer.6:15) Is the church not guilty of the plague of pornography that great destroyer of marriages, often times even before they start? Christian young people embrace same sex ‘marriage’ under the guise of ‘marriage equality’. This is unbelief by professing Believers.

What about divorce? What about till death do us part? Divorce is treated as almost inevitable, for both the professing believer of Christ and for those that reject Him. Professing Christians reveal we do not hold God’s view on marriage – we divorce at almost the same rate as the unbeliever. Does having Christ make no practical difference in our marriages?

Part of the fault of this must lie with the professing Christian. We after all have the truth. We claim to be born again, Spirit-led, and living upon the Spirit inspired word.  But clearly, we are ignorant of what God says about marriage. Since we own Bibles our ignorance must be willful. (Ps.50:17, Neh.9:26, I Pt.4:17) Part of the fault of this lies with the professing Christian minister. We are also willfully ignorant of what God says about marriage.  Ours is the greater sin. To whom much is given much is required. (Lk.12:48, James 3:1, WLC 151)

I understand that even Biblical marriage is not the gospel. But for true Believers in Christ, one of the ways that we adorn the gospel in the church and in the world is to believe and to love and to practice God’s law on marriage. (Eph.5:22-33) To that end I offer my brief thoughts on the Biblical nature and the goodness of marriage. There are various ways to unpack the truth of marriage, I will attempt to do so by looking at marriage as a union, hence my title ‘Marriage: A Blessed Union’.

The standard for marriage.

Let’s begin at the beginning. The standard for what we are to believe about God and for what duty God requires of us is the Holy Bible, which is the Spirit-inspired word of God. (2 Tim.2:14-17) Included in this obviously is the subject of marriage and the related duties concerning marriage. Whatever the Bible says marriage is, is what marriage is. Therefore, the truth of marriage is divinely fixed, it does not change with the whims of man. 

The Creator of marriage.

God Himself is the Creator and the Governor of marriage. God institutes marriage. Marriage comes from the mind of God ultimately. God determines what marriage is. God determines the parties to marriage. God determines the obligations and the blessings of marriage. And God has stated in His word that He dissolves marriage by death, so He has determined the length of marriage.

I am not here taking up the subject of divorce.

God makes all things. God makes the first man. Then He makes the first woman out of the man. Here we have the first marriage. Their ‘one fleshness’ describes the nature of marriage as a union. More on this in a bit. Listen to God’s word on this.

Genesis 1:26. Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”  27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.  28 God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

Genesis 2:18. Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him….(none of the other creatures were suitable)…So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place.  22 The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.  23 The man said, “This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.”  24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.  25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

Here are some lessons we learn. We are dependent creatures who exist by and for God. We can say that God created man as a religious creature, a creature in union and friendship with God. We owe God complete obedience in all things. We are not God or even little gods who have the freedom to think and to act independently of God. We cannot redefine what God has defined on anything, including marriage. To do so is sin.

The definition of marriage.

Let’s listen to the words of Christ as He quotes from what we have just read in Genesis 2:18-25 about marriage.

Pharisees have come to Christ to trap Christ with the subject of divorce. My paper today is not addressing divorce. But I will say this, it is informative that the unbelieving Pharisees were more interested in divorce than on God’s view of marriage. Many professing Christians reason just like the Pharisees. This is how professing Christians disregard God’s view on marriage. They come to what the Bible says on marriage and say, yes, but. A bad sign for the state of one’s heart. Christ did not give them a divorce answer, Christ gave them what God says about marriage.

Matthew 19:4. And He (Jesus) answered and said, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE, V.5.  and said, ‘FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH ‘?  V.6.  So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.”

Jesus quotes Genesis 2:24, the very first marriage in the Bible. This is Christ’s standard for all human marriages, believer, unbeliever, Jew, Gentile, it makes no difference.  Marriage is what God says it is in Genesis.

Do you notice that? Jesus says what marriage is in Genesis, is what marriage is in Christ’s day, and it is what marriage is today.

God said, It was not good for man to be alone. (Gen.2:18) God said, I will make him a suitable helper.  God made man, even before sin, needing the complement of another – his wife.  A man’s wife complements her husband, she makes him whole as it were. God created man needing a perfect companion. The perfect companion, friend and helper of the husband is his wife. God says this.

Spiritual union.

God made this one man.  Then God made this one woman out of the man. The wife is bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh. In their marriage union they are one. (Gen.2:23-24)

In the Bible there are three one-flesh marriages presented to us.

Adam and Eve were one-flesh.  (Gen.2:23-24, Mt.19:4-6)

Christ and His Church are one-flesh. (Eph.5:31-32)

The husband and the wife are one-flesh. (Mt.19:4-6, Eph.5:22-33)

Christ applies that one-flesh union of Adam and Eve (the essence of their marriage) to our marriages, and the two shall become one flesh.  They are no longer two, they are one.  Marriage is fundamentally a one-flesh union or bond that God Himself creates, for life.

The one-flesh is not the conjugal relationship.  It is not primarily physical closeness.

I am at a loss for precise words. There is some kind of spiritual amalgamation, some mystical union or bond.

Charles Hodge commenting on the statement that husbands ought to love their own wives as their own body, says this marital oneness means the sameness of substance.  (Commentary on Ephesians, pp.243-247) This is why I refer to this union as some kind of spiritual amalgamation.

I found one insightful minister that finds even the birth of our children as shedding light on the mystery of this spiritual one-flesh union we enjoy in marriage. 

B.M. Palmer in ‘Lessons in Sorrow’ or also entitled ‘The Broken Home’ he writes regarding witnessing the birth of his child…

‘little miniature of myself – bone and flesh of my own substance – to whom I stand, as the instrumental cause of thy being, a secondary creator!” 

He goes on to say about this product or this gift of his own marriage…little stranger, comest thou to solve or to darken the mystery of marriage.” (pp.6-7)

What did Palmer mean, comest thou to solve or to darken the mystery of marriage?

May I suggest something?  Few Christians think long or hard enough about the doctrine of marriage.  And so, it is the rare Believer that stands back and stares with wonder at this mystery, at this thing, this union called marriage.

Palmer chose his words rightly, he borrowed from the apostle Paul, who himself was inspired by the Holy Spirit. There is something deeply mysterious about our one-flesh union both with Christ our heavenly Spouse and with our earthly spouse.  (Eph.5:31-32)

The great pastor from New Orleans speaks of marriage thusly, a mystical union which blends the two spiritually into one.

And now the joint life issues a birth…the child gathers into itself the double being from which it sprung, and diversity returns to the unity whence it emerged.  Strange reconciliation of Nature’s contradictions…this third, in whom the one and the two are brought together again.  Tiny infant as thou art, thou dost yet interpret the symbol of marriage to those who produced thee.  (p.8)

The one-flesh is one new person, the head is the husband and the body is the wife, one new person.  The marriage union is one new family bond closer than any other family. In marriage, husband and wife share a common life. God did it.  God makes them one flesh instantly.  It is not a process.  It is not a goal.

Thomas Adams said this, As God by creation made two of one, so again by marriage He made one of two.

Here are some things we learn about marriage as a union or bond.

Divine union.

In marriage God takes these two people and He makes them one flesh, one new person as it were.  God affects this spiritual and mystical oneness. The presiding minister did not do this. The justice of the peace did not do this. The man and the woman did not make themselves ‘one flesh’, what God has joined together. How God does this, I do not know. But I know that He does. He says it. That is all I need to know. (Dt.29:29, Job 42:1-6)

Exclusive union.

Marriage is to be between one man and one woman.

Let me first address the obvious. I say obvious but clearly not in these times of apostasy from Christ and blindness to God’s word. (Amos 8:11-12) Men cannot marry men. Women cannot marry women.

There is no precept or practice of this in the Bible. The Bible defines what marriage is and that includes the parties which is essential to true marriage. There can be no discussion. Unions of this type are sin and not marriage. (Gen.19:1-11, Lev.18:22-24, 20:13, I Kg.15:12, I Cor.6:9-11, I Tim.1:8-11, Rom.1:18-32, Heb.13:1-5, Jude 1:5-8, Mk.10:6-9, I Cor.6:17-20)

Beware beloved of those that twist God’s word to conclude that God approves of something that He abominates. (2 Pt.3:14-18) Beware beloved of those that try to trick you by saying that same sex prohibitions are the equivalent of an Old Testament ceremonial law or judicial law that has been fulfilled in Christ or passed away with the coming of Christ. It is not. One man and one-woman marriage is a creation ordinance it does not change. One man and one-woman marriage is part of the irrevocable moral law of God; it is implicit in the seventh commandment.

Next, it is not lawful for any man to have more than one wife, nor for any woman to have more than one husband at the same time. (WCF 24.1, Matt. 19:5,6; Prov. 2:17) Polygamy is not the divine plan. It is informative that the first polygamist was Lamech an unbeliever. (Gen.4:19)

Marriage binds one man to one woman for exclusive union and communion. They belong only and wholly to one another to the exclusion of all others. The wife belongs only for the husband. The husband belongs only for the wife. God says this. Men who disagree go against God. An unsafe thing to do. (I Cor.7:2-4, Heb.13:1-5, Jn.8:7-11)

This is why all conjugal relations apart from marriage are forbidden. (I Cor.6:17-20)

As an aside some people say that it is possible to be ‘one flesh’ with a prostitute. They think they are proving that sexual intimacy is the essence of one-fleshness or that one flesh union is sexual intimacy. They use I Corinthians 6:17-20 for their proof. They are wrong. The Bible uses the Greek word sarx for one flesh. The Bible uses another Greek word soma when a person has illicit sexual relations with another, that we become one ‘body’ (Greek – soma). This is why God says, flee the one body with the prostitute, remember your one flesh union with your wife.

I Corinthians 6:17. Or do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body (soma) with her? For He says, “THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH (sarx).”  17 But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him.  18 Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body.  19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?  20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

Our one flesh union is a reflection of the exclusive union we have with our God, one God, only God and no other. We are united to Christ; we are married to Christ and to no other. (Ezek.16:1-8, 2 Cor.11:2, Rev.21:2, Eph.5:22-33) The husband and the wife belong to each other exclusively.

The traditional wedding vows which are based on the Bible reveal this. A vow is a solemn promise made to another, binding ourselves to that person. There is also an oath part, calling upon God as our witness.

The man vows to his wife – I _____ take thee __________ to be my wedded wife, and I do promise and covenant before God and these witnesses to be thy loving and faithful husband…in sickness and in health, in plenty and in want, in joy and in sorrow, so long as we both shall live.

The woman vows to her husband – I ________ take thee ______ to be my wedded husband, and I do promise and covenant before God and these witnesses to be thy loving and faithful wife…in sickness and in health, in plenty and in want, in joy and in sorrow, so long as we both shall live. 

Beloved, as Believers in Christ, we have solemnly promised to our wife or husband and to our true and living God to exclusive and whole and lifelong marital union. We vowed freely and willingly. God is our witness. (Eccl.5:4-6, Dt.23:21-23, Num.30:2, Ps.61:8, Mal.2:14)

May we remember our wedding vows. May we rely upon God in Christ to enable us to keep them. May we plead the Blood of Christ when we fail. May we seek the assistance of the Holy Spirit to bind us to our spouse that we willingly bound ourselves to.

Intimate union.

Likewise, God ordained marriage for the mutual help of husband and wife.  Remember God said it is not good for man to be alone, I will make him a suitable helper.

Think of this. We are a reflection of God. We are made in His likeness. There is fellowship within the Godhead, a love relationship between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Jn.17:21-26).

Marriage is meant to mirror our relationship with the Lord, a love relationship. Our marriage to our spouse is meant to mirror our marriage to our Christ. Jesus is our Husband. We are His Bride.

Ephesians 5:22. Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. 24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, 26 so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. 28 So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; 29 for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, 30 because we are members of His body. 31 FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH. 32 This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church.

The most intimate human love relationship is between a husband and a wife.

I believe the greatest privilege and the greatest blessing of marriage is that in this amazing union God provides us with our closest friend in all the world. The husband’s closest friend is his wife. It is not good for him to be without her.

Again, listen to the words of the traditional Christian marriage ceremony. 

The husband is asked, will you have this woman to be thy wedded wife, to live with her after God’s commandments in the holy estate of marriage?  And will you love her, honor and cherish her, so long as you both shall live?  

The wife is asked, will you have this man to be thy wedded husband, to live with him after God’s commandments in the holy estate of marriage?  And will you love him, cherish and obey him, so long as you both shall live?   

Listen to these quotes about the intimate friendship of this intimate union.

Martin Luther (1483-1546). There is no more lovely, friendly, and charming relationship, communion, or company than a good marriage.

J.I. Packer (1926-2020), recently departing the kingdom of grace for the kingdom of glory, wrote these words concerning the Puritan view of marriage, which in my opinion is another way of saying the Biblical view of marriage. 😊 

The Puritan ethic of marriage was first to look not for a partner whom you do love passionately at this moment but rather for one whom you can love steadily as your best friend for life, then to proceed with God’s help to do just that.

Here is my favorite quote on marriage, it is by one of my favorite Puritans Matthew Henry (1662-1714). 

The woman was made of a rib out of the side of Adam; not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be beloved. 

When seeking a spouse, here is a question to ask, is my prospective spouse a friend of Christ? Is my prospective spouse my friend?  Remember Beloved, physical attraction is wonderful. We rejoice in it. God created it. But it is not the best reason for marriage. Without friendship, the physical attraction will go away. 

One of the divinely sought fruits of this intimate union are children. God has given us marriage for the blessing of producing children.

Psalm 127:3. Behold, children are a gift of the LORD; The fruit of the womb is a reward.  4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth.  5 How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;

We realize that God in His sovereign government opens and closes the womb.  (Gen.29:31, 30:1-2, 30:22, I Sam.1:5) So sometimes in God’s providence God will not provide children. But still the husband and the wife can enjoy the chief blessing, friends together serving Christ together. But we can say that children are the ‘ordinary’ fruit of marriage.

Think of this. God uses the fruit of marriage for the propagation of the human race, part of that original “dominion mandate” of Genesis 1:28, 9:8 is to be fruitful and to multiply, and to rule as under-stewards for God’s glory.

The “dominion mandate” is restated by Christ and given Its redemptive meaning, make disciples of all the nations. (Mt.28:18-20)

So I do not merely mean, producing children for our own enjoyment. And they are our great enjoyment. But I mean producing children by our marriages for the glory of God and for providing Him with what He calls ‘His holy seed’.

That is to say, marriage is one of God’s means of giving to His church the next generation of those that love and serve and worship Him. I am not by this saying physical generation equal spiritual regeneration. It does not. But God says, He seeks His children from our children. This flows out of the intimacy of our marriage.

This requires unity in Christ for the husband and the wife.

Marriage is to be a living picture of the Church’s relationship with Her Lord Jesus.  We, as His Church are His Bride, and He is our Head and Husband, our Bridegroom. (Acts 20:28, Eph.5:20-33, Rev.19:7, 21:1-10)

This is the reason why Believers are commanded to marry only in the Lord. Christians cannot marry non-believers, or with any that reject the true Gospel, justification, salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, as declared by Scripture alone. (WCF 24.3, Gen. 34:14; Exod. 34:16; Deut. 7:3,4; 1 Kings 11:4; Neh. 13:25-27, Mal. 2:11,12; 2 Cor. 6:14) This is not a racial thing.  But a religious thing. (Gen.24:3)

To the believing husband and wife, and father and mother…

God calls our children His children.

Ezekiel 16:21. You slaughtered My children and offered them up to idols by causing them to pass through the fire.

God calls our children a godly offspring.

Malachi 2:14. But not one has done so who has a remnant of the Spirit. And what did that one do while he was seeking a godly offspring? Take heed then to your spirit, and let no one deal treacherously against the wife of your youth. (Ezra 9:2)

God calls our children holy.

I Corinthians 7:14. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified through her believing husband; for otherwise your children are unclean, but now they are holy.

God calls our children to Christ.

Acts 2:39. For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself. (WCF 24.2-3, Gen.17:1-17, see my blog post on infant baptism) 

What amazing privileges and blessings we enjoy to extend the kingdom of Christ in and through our marriages. Oh beloved, think of your marriage this way. It is glorious! 

Commended union.

God commends marriage as a good thing.

Proverbs 18:22  He who finds a wife finds a good thing And obtains favor from the LORD.

Proverbs 31:10. An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels. 11 The heart of her husband trusts in her, And he will have no lack of gain. 12 She does him good and not evil All the days of her life.

It is true, subsequent the entrance of sin into the world by the fall of Adam, that sin has defaced the image of God in man and has thus marred the sweetness of the marriage union. Listen to God’s word. 

Proverbs 27:15. A constant dripping on a day of steady rain And a contentious woman are alike; 16 He who would restrain her restrains the wind, And grasps oil with his right hand.  (Prov.19:16) 

The idea is a good spouse makes for a good marriage.  Whereas a bad spouse makes for a bad marriage and a bad marriage makes for a bad life.

But this does not nullify God’s commendation of marriage. God says that marriage is good. Oh Beloved, do not listen to the unbelieving society that depicts marriage as a man having a ball and chain around his leg. This is unbelief. Believe God. 

Normative union.

Next let us see that marriage is the ordinary estate.

As with the giving or the withholding of children sometimes God in His wisdom calls us to an estate of singleness, He does not provide us with a spouse. We pray. And submit. And serve.

God will provide the gift necessary to live singly. (I Cor.7:7) Or He will provide a spouse. In His time.

But it is against the Bible to prohibit lawful marriages. I think of churches that forbid their ministers to marry. This is Biblically wrong.  (I Tim.4:3, 5:14-15)

Also there are people, professing Christians, and their parents, and Christian society that commend delaying marriage into late twenties, early thirties or at least until everything is financially in order.  This leads to a breaking of the seventh commandment along with all the other commandments which would be broken in connection with immorality, i.e. idolatry, theft, murder, etc. (see WLC 138-139) 

Permanent union.

Lastly, this union is something that people choose for; they agree together to be husband and wife. This is why people often define a marriage as a covenant or a compact or contract between the husband and the wife with stated promises and vows. And marriage is a covenant. God says it is. (Mal.2:16)

But back to my original point, that somehow God uses that covenanting ceremony and God Himself affects a spiritual union or bond between the two parties. The two parties covenant together, and God unites them.

Think of it this way, we profess faith in Christ and God unites us to Christ. God unites us to Christ permanently. I do not mean marriage lasts into eternity. In heaven we are not married. (Mt.22:30)

Listen to what God has to say on the permanence of the marriage union.

Remember my purpose here is not to treat divorce and remarriage, perhaps we can address this in a later post.

Romans 7:1 Or do you not know, brethren (for I am speaking to those who know the law), that the law has jurisdiction over a person as long as he lives? 2 For the married woman is bound by law to her husband while he is living; but if her husband dies, she is released from the law concerning the husband. 3 So then, if while her husband is living she is joined to another man, she shall be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she is free from the law, so that she is not an adulteress though she is joined to another man.

1 Corinthians 7:39  A wife is bound as long as her husband lives; but if her husband is dead, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord.

Matthew 19:4. And He (Jesus) answered and said, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE, V.5.  and said, ‘FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH ‘?  V.6.  So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.”

Remember the solemn promise?  In sickness and in health, in plenty and in want, in joy and in sorrow, so long as we both shall live,till death do us part.  

Beloved, let me leave you with a summary of the good things that God says about the blessed union of marriage. It is from the prospective of the husband to his wife. Perhaps this is why I love these things so much. They speak to my heart. I pray they speak to your heart.

A man’s wife is…bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh. (Gen.2:23)

A man’s wife is…one flesh with him. (Eph.5:31, Mt.19:5,6)

A man’s wife is…his own body. (Eph.5:28, I Cor.7:4)

A man’s wife is…him self. (Eph.5:28, 33)

A man’s wife is…the desire of his eyes. (Ezek.24:16)

A man’s wife is…the wife of his youth. (Mal.2:14,15, Prov.5:18, Isa.54:6)

A man’s wife is…the companion or friend of his youth. (Prov.2:17)

A man’s wife is…his own well from which his freshwater flows. (Prov.5:15-17)

A man’s wife is…his wife by covenant of his God. (Mal.2:14, Prov.2:17)

A man’s wife is…bound to him for life. (I Cor.7:39, Rom.7:2)


How we delight in being married to our Christ.

May we delight in using our marriages for Christ.
