In preparing a second sermon in our series on marriage, I faced a bit of a quandry. What should I use for a text?
In many ways, the simplest and most logical answer is to turn to Genesis 3, dealing with the fall and its effect on marriage.
But we're not going to do that, for two reasons.
First, there are other passages in the Scriptures that lay out for us God's design for marriage, in a way that is very different from Genesis 2 – the so called “House Tables” in Ephesians 5 and Colossians 3 being perhaps the best known.
