Marriage points to the great mystery of God's love for His people. God has provided forgiveness and restoration for our past sins, and His grace enables us to live as He intends. Alistair Begg explains how this truth applies to the marriage relationship. When a couple adheres to God's design for marriage, the love a husband has for his wife and the respect a wife has for her husband provide a glimpse of Christ's love for His Church and the Church's submission to the Savior.
31“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” 32This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. 33However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
