Marriage is God’s sneaky way to get a person crucified. And crucifixion is God’s sneaky way to give a person New Life. We try to capture love and Love captures us. Love seeks to become incarnate in us. Love is not just passion and Love is not just a covenant or vow. God is Love and True Love is God. The Covenant of God creates the Passion of the Christ. And the Passion of the Christ creates faith in Love, in me. Marriage is God’s sneaky way to get Himself crucified and give us His Life.
(This is #29 in our series from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.)
