For this reason, a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.” – Genesis 2:24
Marriage is a gift of God given for the encouragement, comfort, and multiplication of the human race. Marriage is indeed a gift from God and is not to be entered into lightly. The love in a marriage, husband for wife and wife for husband, is based on the sacrificial love which Jesus Christ first showed to us in submitting Himself to death on the cross. By His love and His commitment, He enables us to love and commit ourselves to each other.
Your brothers and sisters in Christ at Peace rejoice with you in your decision to enter the sacred relationship of Christian marriage. We are grateful that you have chosen to let us share in this most important service of worship and celebration.
