In this episode we explore the status of marriage
in our culture. We discuss how most couples focus totally on
the reception, the dress and all the other trappings, rather
than focus where it counts, the Ceremony, lifelong commitment.
We interview a couple that put starting their life together
and the ceremony as their focus rather than the party after!
Ephesians 5:21-33: 21 Submit to one
another out of reverence for Christ. 22 Wives, submit
yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For
the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of
the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the
church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their
husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as
Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make
her holy, cleansing[b] her by the washing with water through
the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant
church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but
holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to
love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife
loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated their own body,
but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the
church— 30 for we are members of his body. 31 “For this reason
a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his
wife, and the two will become one flesh.”[c] 32 This is a
profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church.
33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he
loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
