Well, I have been farming so I’ve not had much time to blog but some good time to think. I have been pondering more about how so much of the Bible emphasizes the Church being the Bride of Christ. How many marriage words are used in the Old Testament to describe God’s relationship with Israel, such as adulterers, etc.
I am beginning to think that there is a whole lot more connection between all of this marital imagery in the Bible and the message God wants us to get about our marriages here on earth. It may very well be like the symbolism of the temple in the Old Testament pointing to the sacrifice of Christ as the perfect lamb.
John Piper was one of the first to get me thinking about all of this when he talked about the marriage of Christ and His bride the church being the ultimate reality, and our marriages here reflecting that reality. Probably why God hates divorce so much.
