God Designed Marriage to Demonstrate the Gospel

Of all the word-pictures God could’ve chosen to demonstrate the gospel to the world, He chose marriage. The sacrificial and servant-nature of the relationship between a husband and a wife is intended to display the covenant love between God and His Church. God established and defined marriage as a vehicle to advance the gospel and bring people to saving faith in Jesus Christ. This should inform our understanding of how we can honor God and make Him known through our relationships.
