Kingdom disciples uphold God’s good purpose for marriage.
All of history hinges on marriage. From the first marriage to the last. And every marriage in between is a glorious image of the new wedding between Christ and His church.
- God’s good purpose was established at the beginning
- God’s good purpose continues through today
- God’s good purpose for marriage reaches into eternity
What does marriage have to do with discipleship? In Mark 10:1-12 Jesus is confronted once again by the Pharisees who are trying to get him killed. They ask him a question about the allowance of divorce in the law. Jesus responds with a question and then eventually gives an answer that they were not expecting. Jesus both exposes the hardness of their hearts and shows that they have completely missed God’s heart in marriage.
