Nuekirch Wedding

It is not your love, but God’s love that will keep you and your spouse together. After the excitement of the wedding is over, after the honeymoon, after the romance has worn off, when you begin to discover all the flaws and imperfections of your loved one, it will not be your love, but God’s love that will overcome and hold you together. This is the same love that God showed for mankind when he was born in Bethlehem and man and God were joined together in the person of Jesus Christ. There man and God we joined together and clung to each other, just as God says, “A man shall leave his father and mother and cling to his wife and the two shall become one flesh.” So as in Christ man and God become one flesh, in marriage a man and a woman become one flesh and the love that each of them has for God is the love that will hold them together.
