Marriage is cool

I know that in our society marriage is broken. But I dream for the next generation in this place. That we would grab the mantle of marriage as designed by the creator. The we would mirror his image - male and female (Genesis 1:27), that we would mutually complete one another (Genesis 2:18), that we raise up godly legacy in this world (Psalm 127) as a sweet smelling aroma of Jesus Christ. This weekend we had the chance to marry some dear friends. It is a humbling honor to be involved in helping couples vow together before God to love and marry in his ways (Ephesians 5:18-33). What God has joined, let no man separate. Lord, renew your people in our resolve to be kind, compassionate, forgiving one another in love - as you have forgiven us. Let marriage and family and joy and children and the reflection of his grace rise in these days - to the glory of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. .
