Key Takeaways

  • Marriage is prescribed before and after the fall as being between one man and one woman (Ephesians 5:31; Genesis 2; 3:6; Matthew 19:8)
  • The point of marriage is to point to Christ’s love for the church (Ephesians 5:24-25).
  • Husbands and wives have differing responsibilities in order to reflect Christ and the church (Ephesians 5:22-30; Genesis 2:18 22).

Discussing and Applying the Sermon

  • Why is it good to remember, and to remind others, that the truest thing about you is that you are an image-bearer of God, that you were made first and foremost for relationship with God and to find wholeness and completeness in the person and finished work of Christ?
  • Who or what has the final authority on what is true about marriage? What does this mean for your life and relationships with others?
  • When you find your identity in Christ, in His perfect life, death, and resurrection, how does this free you to live the life He’s called you to in the power of the Spirit, whether single or married?
  • What does it look like for you to pursue “holy sexuality” in Christ?
  • If you are a husband, how can you grow in your call to Christ-like, selfless, servant-hearted leadership? How can you grow in loving your wife as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her? Is there a sin you need to confess and repent of? If you are single, how can you grow in these qualities?
  • If you are a wife, how can you grow in your call to follow your own husband as to the Lord? Is there a sin you need to confess and repent of? If you are single, how can you grow in these qualities?
