Castles Part 2 – What Does the Bible Say about Marriage?

In Matthew 7:24-27, Jesus teaches us what the Bible says about marriage. He reminds us that the foundation for your house – your marriage – must be the Rock, the Lord Jesus Christ!  

WHAT A CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE SHOULD LOOK LIKE 

We live in a time of self-idolatry and anarchy. Homes around us are suffering because couples aren’t willing to die to their flesh and serve their spouses. When you say, “I do,” at the altar, you say, “I die,” too. A Christian marriage should be filled with…  

The fear of the Lord – submitting to God’s authority brings peace instead of anarchy. 

Obedience to God’s Word – we can’t live abundantly apart from living obediently. 

When your house becomes God’s house, your home can survive a firestorm of destruction. 

 

THE BIBLICAL FRAMEWORK OF MARRIAGE  

Marriage is about a commission (Genesis 2:18). Adam did not need someone to complete him but rather someone to help in his God-given commission. 

Marriage is about a crucifixion (Genesis 2:19-22). Adam “died” giving life to his bride like Jesus died giving life to His bride, the Church. 

Marriage is about a covenant (Genesis 2:23-24). Adam understood the covenant nature of his relationship with his bride, saying, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh.” 

Marriage is about a companion (Genesis 2:25). Adam and Eve were “naked” and “not ashamed” both physically and spiritually. They were fully known and fully loved in perfect intimacy.   

Christian marriage is not built on a contract but a binding, unbreakable, and irrevocable covenant. Contracts are built on terms and conditions that can be voided, but a covenant is unconditional and unbreakable. The Bible says marriage is a picture of the covenant relationship between Christ and His bride—the Church. If you want your marriage to be blessed by God, you must choose to submit to His way today.
