God uses the metaphor of marriage to describe the close, devoted relationship He wants with us. With that ‘marriage’ as a model, we can learn to be the best spouse to the one we marry on earth.
“Israel, I will make you my wife; I will be true and faithful; I will show you constant love and mercy and make you mine for ever. I will keep my promise and make you mine, and you will acknowledge me as Lord.”
Hosea 2:19-20 GNB
