Sinclair B. Ferguson on Marriage

Standard

Sinclair B. Ferguson in his book “Discovering God’s Will” answers what is the ultimate aim of matrimony:

“The ultimate aim of marriage is to reflect God’s image; to reflect the glory of his grace and Being. This means that marriage can never an end in itself. It exists for a greater purpose than its own fulfillment.

When two people are joined in the Lord., something of the glory of God should be seen. The Father’s love for his Son; the Son’s love for his Father; the Spirit’s love for both—these should be at least sensed and tasted in a Christian marriage. If there is grace in it, then there will be a touch of glory in it too. God demonstrated his glory clearly in the sacrifice of his Son. So a marriage demonstrates the glory of God when at its heart there is a spirit of self-sacrificing love.” (Discovering God’s Will by Sinclair B. Ferguson, pp.100, The Banner of Trust)

  1. Hi “Nitoy thank you for sharing this message, marriage is at the heart of God’s will for both men and woman unless they have been called to Celibacy but this is for a few not many.

    A man and woman’s’ heart should be so hidden in Christ Jesus that to find each other they need to seek Him first.

    Christian Love Anne.
