Preached on Sunday the 14th of August, 2022.
The covenant of marriage is a beautiful portrait of the reality of Jesus and His Church. Jesus reminds us in this passage about the exclusive one man, one woman, life-long union as defined by God from creation. This cuts against the cultural drift at many levels.
Divorce can only be seen as an emergency exit that God has provided because of our hardness of heart. Jesus knows no such hardness of heart. He will never need an emergency exit from the relationship He has with any believer. The believer already experiences the reality that marriage points to. Being loved so faithfully by Jesus, let us love faithfully.
