“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.
– Ephesians 5:31-32
The disciples said to him, “If such is the case of a man with his wife, it is better not to marry.” But he said to them, “Not everyone can receive this saying, but only those to whom it is given.”
– Matthew 19:10-11 (emphasis added)
We hope that over the next 207 days (yeah, we’re counting) and beyond, we are able to receive what the Lord has to teach us about marriage. It is a gift from God to know and understand marriage (“only those to whom it is given”); we hope that you’ll pray with us that we might better understand this profound mystery.
