Jerry Dirmann Ministries - Marriage Covenant

Marriage is a covenant, it is using an ancient and rich Biblical concept to describe how God’s steadfast and exclusive love for his people is a model for the loving union of a married couple.

In this Session, there is no audio, PowerPoint or Handouts because the students are encouraged to watch a Marriage Covenant Video teaching by Pastor Jerry Dirmann Founder and Senior Pastor of The Rock

The Old Testament writers trace the relationship between God and the chosen people of Israel by speaking of the covenant he offers to them through Abraham, Moses. This covenant is an invitation to enter into a relationship in which “I will be your God and you will be my people” (Jeremiah 30:22)

(Exodus 19:5)

5 Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine.

A covenant is a commitment which God initiates. The Bible tells a story of Israel repeatedly straying from the demands of this covenantal relationship and God always trying to call the people back to their original commitment.

Despite the fact that the people continually break the covenant, God still promises them a new and everlasting covenant

(Read Jeremiah 31).

These prophecies are fulfilled in Jesus Christ. In his life, death and resurrection, God manifests in a definitive way his desire to draw us into a loving relationship with him and with one another. St. Paul teaches that marriage is a pre-eminent symbol (or sacrament) of the covenant which Christ has with his people. This is because marriage is a commitment by which spouses pledge to each other all aspects of their lives “until death do us part.”
