Marriage: A Covenant, Not a Contract

From Series: We Two Are One

Matthew 19:1-12  (ID: 1885)

It is important to remember that God is the author of marriage. Marriage serves three purposes: it is a life-long companionship, it is necessary to establish a family unit, and it also benefits society. When a man devotes himself to meeting all of his wife’s needs, he finds fulfillment – and vice versa. Alistair Begg reminds us of the importance of our vows, and how they reflect a true understanding of what it means to love, honor, and keep for life.
