Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 11/10/2013

Sunday’s message in the Foundations of Marriage series was called God and Marriage. Here is a brief outline of the message:

I. Marriage is a picture of God as trinity
   A. Male and female as part of God’s image (Genesis 1:26-27)
   B. The headship of God and man (1 Corinthians 11:3)

II. Marriage is a picture of God and his people
   A. God is described as a husband to Israel (Isaiah 54:5)
   B. Our unfaithfulness to God is described in terms of adultery (Jeremiah 3:8-10; Ezekiel 16)
   C. God’s faithfulness to us is described in terms of marital faithfulness (Hosea 2:19-20)

III. Marriage is a picture of Christ and the church
   A. The relationship of husband and wife reflects the relationship of Christ and the church (Ephesians 5:22-27)
   B. The oneness of husband and wife reflects the oneness of Christ and the church (Ephesians 5:28-33)
   C. The marriage of husband and wife reflects the future glory of Christ and the church (Revelation 19:6-9)
