Engaged to the Savior (Matthew 22)
Well, you won't hear this in a marriage conference. There's no marriage in heaven.
About the Guest
Jesus says in Matthew 22: "At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage..." As Christ's bride we're all engaged to the Savior. Marriage on earth is meant to lead us to that ultimate wedding, if you will, where there won't be a need for marriage as we know it. Because of that our love for Christ should far outweigh our earthly loves. How should you love your spouse, or if single date, or prepare your child for marriage? First, live your relationships in light of eternity.
