Sermon | THE PURPOSE OF MARRIAGE – Bishop Peter Babalola

The purpose of marriage is ultimately to glorify God since he tells us he made us for his glory (Isaiah 43:7).

In this sermon, the purpose of Marriage was explained as the mystery of christ and the church and how God designed marriage to be. – Genesis 2:24

Marriage is the covenant union of a man and a woman for the purpose of committing to each other in companionship, provision of food and shelter, sexual privileges, children, and protection.

A lot of people think marriage is merely for companionship and love; but when self-serving reasons are the basis of marriage, those often fail to be a proper support for lasting marriage.

Instead, the Bible tells us a lot about marriage; and when we submit to God’s plan for it, we not only bring glory to God but we also develop healthy, good, and loving relationships within marriage.

In Genesis 2:24, God says, “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”

What kind of relationship is this?
How are these two people held together?
Can they walk away from this relationship?
Can they go from spouse to spouse?
Is this relationship rooted in romance?
Sexual desire?
Need for companionship?
Cultural convenience?

Marriage is meant by God to put that Gospel reality on display in the world.

God designed marriage to fulfill these important and vital functions. When we understand them, we will be better able to honor marriage.
