God creates man in His very own image. God desires the depth of His love to be revealed through ourselves as we love Him first with all our heart, mind, and soul. A marriage develops between God and man through a shared, devoted, relationship. God is the groom and His people are the bride. God’s love is learned and known within our individual selves so that it will also be seen in the relationships we share with one another.
As well, as we accomplish our closest relationship, the marriage between man and woman, we can know the depths of the most intimate kind of love. Now that we know marriage, our own marriage resembles the committed relationship we have as individuals with God. Within that beauty, a product of love, a child is born, and God is now in full view.
