    Marriage as Ministry Power

    Marriage as Ministry Power

    Whether you’re single, married, widowed, or divorced, you can immediately apply Scripture’s teachings about marriage to your life.
    According to the Scripture, marriage is a divine invention. It stands apart from other human institutions because it didn’t evolve out of human thinking. And the basic principles for marriage that are laid out in Ephesians 5 are critical to our understanding of what God says marriage is.
    We’ll look now at the first of these basic principles: Self-centeredness is the main enemy of any marriage.
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 18, 1991. Series: Marriage. Scripture: Ephesians 5:22-33.

    Overview: Marriage as Commitment

    Overview: Marriage as Commitment

    Ephesians 5 is the most detailed and famous of New Testament passages about marriage. It shows us the power, the definition, the priority, the purpose, the structure, and the mystery of marriage.
    In this series, we’ve already looked at the power of marriage, though we’ll talk a little more about it now. Then the next aspect to discuss is the definition of marriage: that marriage is a covenant.
    We’ll look at 1) what it means that marriage is a covenant and 2) the amazing and practical ramifications of marital commitment.
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 25, 1991. Series: Marriage. Scripture: Ephesians 5:21–33.

    Marriage as Commitment and Priority

    Marriage as Commitment and Priority

    The purpose of marriage is friendship, companionship. Your spouse has to be your best friend, or you don’t have a marriage. I know that’s not traditional, but it’s biblical.
    We’re in a series looking at marriage: at its power, its definition, its priority, its purpose, its structure, and its mystery. So far, we’ve looked at the power of marriage and the definition of marriage. Now we’ll look more into the definition of marriage and then at the priority marriage.
    We’ll look now at 1) three critical aspects without which a marriage will not run, 2) the definition of marriage, and 3) the priority of marriage.
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 1, 1991. Series: Marriage. Scripture: Ephesians 5:22–33.

    Marriage as Priority and Friendship

    Marriage as Priority and Friendship

    I’m tired of listening to sentimental, slurpy talks on marriage during weddings and in Sunday school and in sermons. They have about as much depth and reality to them as a Hallmark card. The fact is, marriage is many things—in fact, it’s everything except slurpy and sentimental.
    Marriage is glorious: it’s a burning strength and joy. Marriage is hard: it’s blood, and it’s sweat, and it’s tears. It’s defeats, and it’s victories. It’s almost everything except sweet.
    We’re in a series on the Bible’s view of marriage. We’ve already looked at the power, the definition, and the priority of marriage. We look now at 1) the great purpose of marriage, and 2) what this purpose means in practicality.
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 8, 1991. Series: Marriage. Scripture: Ephesians 5:21–33.

Great podcast!

Such great content! Thanks for creating this podcast!

scrappy chaplain ,

Grateful to see this!

This series is a treasure trove of reflections embedded in scripture applied to a wandering and vaguely hopeless age. It served to challenge and anchor my conception of marriage as a young man in my twenties and I highly recommend it!
