Our Model for Marriage
"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. This is a profound mystery-but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband." Ephesians 5:31-33
The characteristics that define the relationship between Christ and the church are the same characteristics that lay the foundation for a successful union between a husband and a wife.
