The Limit of Marriage
Marriage is a limit. Marriage is a limit because it prioritizes your spouse over all other relationships. Marriage is a limit because it sets boundaries for sexual intimacy. Marriage is a limit because it replaces individual independence with dependence on one another. Marriage is a limit because God designed marriage as part of being human. Because the story of the Bible begins and ends with a marriage, God is reminding us that He also designed marriage to point to a more intimate, meaningful relationship. God didn’t just create us for one another. God created us for himself. The limit of marriage forms us into the image of Christ and gives us a foretaste of our marriage to Christ.
