Yesterday I had the privilege of performing the marriage of a grandson. That is why a blog was not written yesterday.
One of the points I make to any couple who profess to know Jesus as their Savior, is that marriage was designed by God to be a direct reflection of Him. Since each of us are made in the “image” of God and carry His “likeness” (Genesis 1:26), He intended that we represent that image in every relationship we enter. The first relationship God introduced to Adam was a woman made from his rib, taken from his side (2:21-22.
As marriage is a reflection of Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5:22-27), so man and woman in marriage reflect the unity and oneness found between Divine Persons. This is another reason God pronounced that “it is not good that man should be alone” (2:18). While we individually must live to represent Christ to the world, there is even a greater witness when we collective represent Him.
It is good for us to ask ourselves if we are maintaining this outlook in our marriages and every other relationship. This is part of our highest calling as followers of Jesus. To fail in this responsibility is to fail our mission in this world.
