Speaker: Jeremy Kimble - This weekend, we are thankful to have Jeremy and Rachel Kimble with us. Jeremy will be preaching on the topic of marriage from Ephesians 5. Pursuing a Biblical understanding of marriage isn’t just for married couples – it should be a pursuit for every Christian. Tim Keller says it this way: “The Bible begins with a wedding (of Adam and Eve) and ends in the book of Revelation with a wedding (of Christ and the church). Marriage is God’s idea…The concept and roots of human marriage are in God’s own action, and therefore what the Bible says about God’s design for marriage is crucial” (Tim Keller, The Meaning of Marriage). Ephesians 5 will guide us through God’s design in the intricate dynamics of marital roles, and unmask idols that threaten them. May God help us to reframe our perspective, seeing marriage as a conduit to glorify God, and in doing so, foster relationships grounded in love, respect, and God’s good purpose. Jeremy is an Associate Professor of Theology at Cedarville University and has served in pastoral ministry for eight years. He and Rachel are currently members of University Baptist Church.
