Marriage: A Living Parable of the Gospel

God created marriage between a wife and husband to reveal something to us of the union that we as the church share with Jesus Christ. As a husband and wife share all that they are and all that they have with one another, Jesus does the same with his bride—the church. Wives and husbands also illustrate the Gospel in the way that they fulfill their perspective roles called for here in Ephesians 5:22-33
