These verses in Ephesians paint such a beautiful image of God’s intentional plan for the family. No matter what our current life circumstances are… married, single, a family of your own or desiring a family of your own. We can all take away something from this illustration. Two people, leaving their families, choosing to create a new family. A lot of beauty and a lot of brokenness. God desires for our relationships to model unity, just as we are on with Christ. May we be people who pursue unity with each other to bring honor and glory to God.
“As the Scriptures say, “A man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.” This is a great mystery, but it is an illustration of the way Christ and the church are one.”
