English: STUDY 16

2nd Sunday after Easter April 18, 2021

THEME: COVENANT WITH THE LIVING GOD
SUB-THEME 3: God’s covenant with man-(9)
TOPIC: Marriage covenant
TEXTS: Gen. 2: 18-25; Deut. 7: 1-4; 2 Cor. 6: 14-16

AIMS:
i. to appraise the biblical basis for Marriage covenant,
ii. to discuss contemporary challenges against God’s original plan and
iii. to discuss practical ways of having a successful marriage with the kingdom mind-set

INTRODUCTION: The Marriage Covenant is the oldest relationship in the world, established by God in
Eden for the union of a man and a woman as husband and wife. Man and woman are radically different
physically, emotionally, and spiritually, yet they are designed by God to complement each other as they
“become one flesh”. Despite the failure of Adam and Eve, God’s principles for marriage have remained
the same –It is between a man and a woman; not a man and a man or a woman and a woman. It is also not
about a human marrying an animal. Marriage symbolizes the greater relationship that exists between
Christ and the true believer. Why then is it so difficult for some people to obey this Covenant principle?

 

STUDY GUIDE:
1. How do you understand the concept of the Marriage Covenant and how do the texts above agree
with your understanding?
2. Why did God institute marriage with its associated responsibilities? Gen. 1: 27-28; 2: 18-20; 1
Cor. 7: 2-3, 10-16
3. What reason did Jesus gave for divorce and why? Matt 5:32; 19:9; Compare Job 24:15-17; Prov
7:10-23; 6:26-27.
4. Compare and contrast contemporary marriage challenges against the original plan of God in
marriage and their consequences. Lev 20:10-16; Josh. 23: 11-13; Matt 19: 3-9; Rom. 1: 26-29.
What are the solutions with the mindset of the kingdom of God? 1 Cor. 7: 2-5; Col 3:5-6.

CONCLUSION: Although marriage will be only here on earth, God’s desire for His people in the
Marriage Covenant is one-man-to-one-woman within the body of believers until they are separated by
death. This can be difficult for Christians not heavenly-minded but Christians who are heavenly-focused
will find it is not difficult.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Only Christians heavenly-minded find it easy to obey and follow the biblical
principles of marriage.

MEMORY VERSE: Gen. 2: 24 “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his
wife and they shall become one flesh.”
