Marriage and Family – Part I
The natural family unit and its foundation in marriage were created by God to teach us to live for Him, to imitate Him, and to show us the relationship between God and His Bride, and between the Father and His children. In this course, we will examine what the Bible says about the areas that the husband and wife must fulfill, what kind of relationship should exist between them, how to love, teach, and train children in the ways of the Lord, the kind of relationship that should exist between parents and children, and the order and priorities for the family as the Bible outlines them.
Since all believers are part of God’s family, we all have spiritual fathers, and we are all called to have spiritual children. Therefore, this teaching is important for any member of the Body of Christ, whether married or single. Our prayer is that through this course, the Lord will show us His pattern, will shed light on our path, and will give us His grace to conduct our family according to His heart.
