Title: What is Marriage?
Scripture: Matthew 19:1-12
Speaker: Tim Spanburg,

I. What Marriage Is
1. Marriage connects two genders into one new reality.
2. Marriage is a covenant relationship, not a consumer relationship.
“We marry to make a nice feeling permanent. We imagine that marriage will help us to bottle the joy we felt when the thought of proposing first came to us...We married to make such sensations permanent but failed to see that there was no solid connection between these feelings and the institution of marriage.” -NY Times
3. Marriage is a gift of God - and a product of human beings.
II. Why Marriage Has Been Ruptured
III. How We Can Renew Our Hope
