As couples submit to Christ and one another, we get a glimpse into our union with Christ. And we also get a practical way to love our wives: as Christ laid his life down for the church, we are to lay down our live for our spouse. How can marriages be driven and centered on Christ?
As Christians, we must fight to keep our marriages vibrant and healthy in all circumstances, understanding their importance to a covenantal God. Too often do we find ourselves looking for loopholes to get out.
Through sex, practiced in marriage, we glorify Christ and know Him more fully.
God's ways are higher than ours, and nowhere is this more apparent than with His standards for marriage. To be wise in this, we must be willing to submit to His objective wisdom and not our subjective feelings.
