At the heart of marriage, there is a message about who we are as human beings in relationship to God. Paul writes to the church in Ephesus, "This mystery [called marriage] is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church" (Ephesians 5:32) The Lord is saying to us that marriage is a witness on earth of the victory by Christ that makes us one with Him. As Christ makes us one with Himself through the cross, so marriage makes us one as husband and wife through our faithfulness to each other.
