What is the Purpose of Marriage?

Why marriage? Why is there marriage? Why does marriage exist? Why do people marry? Why does anything exist? Why do you exist? Why does sex exist? Why do earth and sun and moon and stars exist? Why do animals and plants and oceans and mountains and atoms and galaxies exist?

The answer to all these questions, including the one about marriage is: All of them exist to and for the glory of God. That is, they exist to magnify the truth and worth and beauty and greatness of the almighty  God. Not the way a microscope magnifies, but the way a telescope magnifies. You know the microscopes magnify by making tiny things look bigger than they are.

Telescopes magnify by making unimaginably big things look like what they really are. Microscopes move the appearance of size away from reality. Telescopes move the appearance of size toward reality.  Marriage in particular exist to move the appearance of God in people’s minds toward Reality. God is unimaginably great and infinitely valuable and unsurpassed in beauty. “Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable” (Ps. 145:3, ESV). The reality of God is God Himself over all things and everything that exists is meant to magnify the Reality of God .
God should be expressed and seen by others in your marriage.
  “Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the earth, everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory”(Isaiah 43:6–7, ESV emphasis added).

We have been created to display the glory of God. Apostle Paul concludes the first eleven chapters of his letter to the Romans with the exaltation of God as the source and end of all things: “For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen” (Romans 11:36, ESV,emphasis added). He makes it even clearer in Colossians 1:16, where he says, “By [Christ] all things were created, in heaven and on earth … all things were created through him and for him” (emphasis added).

 Don't think that “for Him” means “for His need,” or “for His benefit,” or “for His improvement.” Apostle Paul made it crystal clear in Acts 17:25 that God is not “served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything” (ESV). The term “for His glory” and “for Him” means, “for the display of His glory,” or “for the showing of His glory,” or “for the magnifying of His glory.”We need to let this sink in. Once there was God, and only God. The universe is His creation. It is not coeternal with God, it is not God. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God... All things were made through him” (John 1:1, 3, ESV). All things, all that is not God was made by God. So once there was only God.

Therefore God is absolute Reality; we are not, the universe is not and marriage is not. We are derivative from Him. The universe is of secondary importance, not primary. The human race is not the ultimate reality, nor the ultimate value, nor the ultimate measuring rod of what is good or what is true or what is beautiful. God is, God is the one ultimate absolute in existence. Everything else is from Him and through Him and for Him.

That is the starting place for understanding marriage. If we get this wrong, everything goes wrong. And if we get it right; really right, in our heads and in our hearts by meditating on the reality of God through His word, then our marriage will be transformed by this reality. Our marriage will become what it was created by God to be; a display of the truth and worth and beauty and greatness of God.

If we want to see marriage have the place in the world and in the church that it is supposed to have; that is, if we want marriage to glorify the truth and worth and beauty and greatness of God. We must teach and preach more about God and reveal God's ultimate purpose for marriage.

Most young people today do not bring God to their courtship and marriage; who He is, what He is like, how He acts. In the world there is almost no thought or even picture of God in their relationship and marriage, which is explained with the way they live. He is not even on the list to be invited. He is simply and breathtakingly omitted. In the church the view of God that young couples bring to their relationship is so small instead of huge, and so marginal instead of central, and so vague instead of clear, and so impotent instead of all-determining, and so uninspiring instead of ravishing, that when they marry, the thought of living marriage to the glory of God is without meaning and without content to them.

Marriage has two views in our world today, the man centered view and the God centered view. In a man-centered view, we will maintain our marriage as long as our earthly comforts, desires, and expectations are met. In a God-centered view, we preserve our marriage because it brings glory to God and points a sinful world to a reconciling Creator.
Once we recognize that God created marriage, we search the Scripture to carefully and faithfully ensure we understand why God created it. There we find that God intends for marriage to be a lifelong union between a man and woman that displays the glory of God in the gospel.

We love and celebrate you.


There is a void in every man that wealth, fame, social status, sex, drink, fun and the likes can't fill.  It is only God that can fill that void, what is that void that is missing? It is the absence JESUS IN YOUR LIFE AND ALL HE OFFERS such as peace, love, righteousness and joy in the Holy Ghost.  You have taken the wheel of your life all by yourself and like Peter you have caught nothing with your life, this is the time to allow Jesus Christ into your boat (life)  so he can help you to catch the fullness of life in him that gives you a meaningful life on earth and defines your eternal destination.

If you want to surrender to Jesus Christ, why not say this prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ  I acknowledge that I am a sinner,  I believe in your death and resurrection.  I ask you forgive me of my sins,  I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life.  I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .Amen .

If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught to fellowship there.
