Marriages that Minister: A Portrait of Christ and His Bride
The old adage states, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” God designed marriage to be a picture of Christ and His relationship with His bride, the church. When the watching world views the portrait of your marriage, what are the words that it conveys?
Marriages that Minister will challenge you to think differently about your marriage. We are not talking about what can be accomplished by human effort. It is an invitation for you to participate in what is humanly impossible yet divinely possible. We will explore the relationship that Christ has with His bride and therefore how we should be relating to Him, not how a man can make a woman feel good or how a wife can make her husband happy. We are offering you transformation through an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, which will completely change the composition of your wedding portrait so that it becomes a picture of Christ and His bride.
God uses marriage as a means to perfect us into His image. A marriage that incorporates the godly surrendered soul of a husband and the holy yielded spirit of a wife with the unsurpassable blessings of an unfailing God braids in triunity, forming a bond that withstands the fiery darts of the wicked one. When a marriage matures in finding Christ relevant, it becomes a dramatic depiction of a masterpiece marriage that ministers.
