A Vision of Covenant Marriage

This is the final message in the Home-Life 101 teaching series from Genesis 2:18 and Hebrews 13:4.

Genesis 2:18 – three facts of covenant as seen through God’s created order

  1. The created order of all things reveals the significance of the marital union.
  2. The story of the first marriage displays God’s intention of the uniqueness of the marriage union between husband and wife.
  3. This uniqueness stands defined by God as good.

Hebrews 13:4 – three ways of honoring covenant as seen through New Testament principles.

  1. Every husband and wife must embrace marriage as a reflection of God’s original design.
  2. The value of the “institutional other” must be held in highest regard.
  3. The Scriptures warn against defiling God’s intention for husband and wife.

Conclusion: Marriage as a covenant experience (I will make a helper suitable…)

  • God enveloped the first humans in perfect fellowship.
  • God so designed that man and woman live in that same type of fellowship.
