What Is Marriage?


What is marriage? Marriage is the one flesh union
of one man with one woman for one lifetime. So on their wedding day a man
and a woman by taking their vows step inside a circle, a morally
inviolable circle, and inside that circle a recreation of the
Garden of Eden. For that man and that woman all
barriers between them fall away. What makes marriage unique is
that it is a total sharing of all that we are with no
boundaries, a one flesh union. That’s marriage and what is the
Gospel? The Gospel is God’s declaration,
the gospel is a marriage proposal from the son of God
offering himself to us for all that he is, meeting all of our
needs. And our response to the gospel
even as he says, “I do”, our response is, “I do” and we give
ourselves to him without reserve.
