Why is our Relationship with God Like a Marriage?
The covenant of marriage is all about love without limits. Covenants are sealed with an oath before God, because we are so serious about our vows. God loves us and He wants us to love one another with all the sacredness that marriage demands. The world’s attitude toward marriage often degrades the sanctity of marriage. God does not want this covenant broken, because He loves both man and woman and the family they will produce. He wants security through our faithfulness to Him and one another. Faith keeps that covenant together. Faith in our promises to one another is the essence of our marriage covenant.
