Marriage is a beautiful picture of our relationship to the Lord.
Fleming Island, FL (PRWEB) December 14, 2012
In his new book “Married to Christ” (published by WestBow Press), author and minister Milton J Fletcher reminds readers that they are “… not married to the benefits and privileges of Christ primarily, but to Christ himself.”
The heart of Fletcher’s work, he reminds readers, is that they were born “married to the law” and can only become “married to Christ” by dying to the law of God, thereby being released from the law, just as a woman is freed from the law of marriage when her husband dies.
“Marriage,” as Fletcher says, “is a beautiful picture of our relationship to the Lord.”
An excerpt from “Married to Christ”:
“The Bible tells us, that we cannot be married to Christ and married to the law at the same time. To be married to the law mean to owe a debt to God’s law and justice, one, which we cannot pay, because we are sinners (Romans 3:10-20). To be married to Christ, is to have that debt paid in full by Christ, our substitute and surety, as he obeyed the law’s precepts perfectly, and as he satisfied its demand of justice for our sins. Therefore, the body of Christ cannot marry us to Christ, until we are dead to the law, and we cannot be dead to the law, but by his substitution, obedience, and death to establish righteousness for us.”
