In a culture of self-expression and self-gratification, Scripture’s teaching about marriage and divorce can sound strange. Even many Christians have, without realizing it, failed to see marriage as a lifelong, covenant union between one man and woman, a union that bears witness to the relationship between Christ and His bride, the church. In this message from Matthew 19:1–2, David Platt takes a look at Christ’s teaching on marriage and divorce and the importance of this God-ordained institution. Gratefully, whether you’re single, married, or divorced, God’s grace in Christ is able to restore you, sustain you, and empower you to live for His glory.
