Family forms the first environment for the children born on earth. It bridges everyone from the natural birth to the existence standing individually before God. We are deeply aware of the importance of serving the families established on truth and nourishing them to be graceful in all aspects of life. The biblical virtue in terms of family is constantly taught and delivered through the seminars and meetings to uphold the families healthy.
“Haven’t you read that at the beginning the Creator made them male and female and said for this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” (Matthew 19:4-5)
And the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him. “…So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, He took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib (side) he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. (Gen 2:18, 21 22)
Marriage is the divine will of God that reveals invisible and mysterious world of heavenly love on earth. It is the most vivid and clear demonstration of God’s love being incarnated through human relationship.
The man and woman meet and experience the union by love beyond the differences of emotion, sexuality and other various elements in life. They form a family setting up Christ as their mediator in the center. Man learns the essence of his existence deeply when he is joined in the relationship with somebody. God’s presence in the center of their relationship distinguishes Christian family from those made on secular culture and desire. Through the biblical tradition of the marriage shown in the scripture, Christians are to form the beautiful and pure marriage relationship blessed by God’s love and truth.
