When we look at the Scripture, we discover that there are a variety of ways in which a marriage witnesses of Christ. First, marriage is a conduit for the gospel.
In Genesis 1:28 God gives the command to the man and woman to be â€śfruitful and multiply.â€ť The purpose for this fruitfulness is further explained in Genesis 17.
Marriage is one way God extends His kingdom. And thus, all who are married are commanded to teach their children.
On account of God's purpose for marriage â€” the heralding of the Gospel of Christ â€” marriages are to be â€śfruitfulâ€ť and â€śmultiplyâ€ť that the Gospel might extend to the next generation. Thus, marriage serves the redemptive principle in that it extends God's kingdom.
