According to 1 Timothy 3 pastors are to be men who have the gift of teaching, and as any teaching pastor will tell you: we love metaphor.
Metaphor is the “This American Life” of teaching tools.
Metaphor drives home a point like Morgan Freeman drives home Ms. Daisy (did I just use a simile to explain a metaphor? Why, yes, yes I did.)
EvanWelcher.com will periodically post metaphors explaining Christian marriage in an effort to saturate the resplendent covenant of marriage with gospel truthiness.
Here are three.
1. Christian marriage is a mirror in which we see a truer reflection of our sinful humanity; thereby making us stand is awe of God’s grace all the More.
2. Christian marriage is a picture wherein we find ourselves penciled into the background rather than the master piece in the foreground.
3. Christian marriage is a movie wherein two former stars find themselves as the supporting cast in a Christ centered plot.
Peace in Christ,
~ Pastor Evan
