The primary reason that so many Christians are ill-equipped to defend marriage is that they don’t understand its theocentric nature. They don’t understand God’s purpose in creating marriage. They don’t understand that marriage was created to be a picture of the gospel of Jesus Christ. They don’t understand the husband as a picture of Christ and the wife as a picture of the church. As a result, our marriages have become extremely self-centered. In this sermon, Scott T. Brown — the director of the National Center for Family-Integrated Churches — examines Paul’s words in Ephesians 5:22-33 and helps us to understand what it means to have a gospel-centered marriage.
