This is a continuation of a series on how God created marriage to be living picture of the gospel to make us more like Christ and as a witness to the world for the glory of God. We looked at this in terms of how God designed marriage to be a COVENANT similar to Christ’s covenant to us. And we looked at this in terms of HEADSHIP and how God designed the husband to be the servant leader of the home as Christ is servant leader of the Church. In this post we will look at marriage in terms of RECONCILIATION and how God designed both the conflict and reconciliation found in marriage to be a profound picture of Christ’s reconciliation of the Church. So let’s start with a video. WARNING: some foul language.
If you find any humor in the video above, it’s probably because you’ve “been there”. The English writer, G.K. Chesterton once said “Marriage is an adventure….like going to war.” While actor Gary Busey observed, “Marriage is the only war where you sleep with the enemy.” Sad, but often true.
