Marriage and Christ

Filed under: marriage and family, theology — Christ Ranger @ 7:45 pm

My friend Anna raised some good points on her blog recently concerning marriage and love.  The longer I know Christ and the longer I’m married, the more interesting I find it that we’re betrothed to Christ.  Talk about being unevenly yoked .  First Jesus died for us, and now he’s betrothed to us?  Amazing grace.  At least for us, in our human marriages, we are to find our satisfaction and identity in Christ instead of demanding meaning and satisfaction from our spouses.  Easy to say, difficult to do.  Another mystery to me is what satisfaction Christ finds in his commitment to us?  Why does he hold us so dearly?  He who serves the least, ie us, is the greatest.  We denied and crucified him and are adulteress of heart, but yet he holds us firm in the palm of his nail scarred hands.  Amazing grace.
