Marriage is called 'a profound mystery' in the bible. In life, it can be filled with both joy and heartache, celebrations and struggles, fun and fear. Whatever our experience of marriage, most of us know it is bigger than us, and needs something more than just us to be sustained and to thrive.
Because marriage is a profound mystery, and its meaning is found in the covenant bond between Christ and the church, every aspect of marriage is to be founded upon and filled with God's grace. How else can two sinners come together as one flesh and thrive in a fallen world?
