  2. Examples from Jesus’ Ministry • It is important to mention that this relationship between man and women has been an essential part of God’s plan before the time of Jesus. God called man and women to procreate (Genesis 1:28) and take care of each other (Genesis 2:24) • The love shown between a man and a women represents a sign of love for all of God’s people. • Throughout Jesus’ ministry, he always made marriage a top priority. • Jesus showed his first miracle at a wedding feast in Canna. By doing this he showed the goodness of marriage and the importance if it as a covenant.

  3. Effects • A marriage bond has been established by God and never can be dissolved. • Grace is achieved through Christ. This grace allows for couples to grow together and achieve holiness . It allows them to forgive one another, bear burdens together, and heal each other with love. • Calls both the man and woman to be faithful to one another (fidelity). • It's important that the marriage is open to having children. • If the couple does have children, It's the couple's duty to be the main role models on how to live out Jesus' calling in the church.
