Bible study on dating marriage
Another Trinitarian implication is love in marriage.
The wife submits to the husband and the husband loves his wife.
Marriage demonstrates two individual people becoming “one” for the rest of their lives while maintaining their individuality.
With that said, there are other Trinitarian implications to the marriage union.
It is not that the wife does not love her husband or that the husband never submits to his wife (cf. It’s just that the defining characteristic of the woman’s service to her husband should be submission, and the defining characteristic of the husband’s service to his wife should be love.
This is part of the way we see the image of God in the marriage relationship. The wife honors him as her head and submits to him in everything (Col ). Marriage should demonstrate the perfect love and submission in the Godhead.
When the world looks at a Christian marriage, they should see a husband who makes daily sacrifices for his wife and actively leads the home spiritually. They should see something of the glory and the greatness of God.
The husband must love his wife sacrificially and lead his wife spiritually. People should be encouraged and challenged by watching a godly marriage.With so many marriages ending in divorce or continuing in disarray, the glory of God has been greatly dimmed.
