A person who understands the gospel–who has the gospel in his her blood–is a person who is strong and yet humble, and therefore, out of reverence for Christ submits and is able to serve other people, putting the needs of other people ahead of their own. That’s the power of marriage. That is the basis. Paul here gives us not just the power of marriage, but also its definition. That’s what we’ll now look at.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 25, 1991. Series "Marriage". Scripture: Ephesians 5:22-33.
