Church Music & Worship In Roanoke, VA
“Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth — for your love is more delightful than wine. Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the maidens love you! Take me away with you — let us hurry! Let the king bring me into his chambers.” Song of Songs 1:2-4
Marriage is a picture of our union with Christ. In marriage the husband is cast in the role of Jesus who loves his own bride, the church, supremely. Just as Jesus gave himself for her, so a husband is always to put his wife’s interests before his own, loving her unconditionally and sacrificially. Wives in this joyful drama portray a faithful church, who returns his love faithfully and respectfully, following his gracious leadership. In a covenant of mutual, self-giving love, empowered by the Holy Spirit, couples joyfully depict the gospel.
If you have found the one with whom you wish to image the gospel for the rest of your lives, we would love to hear from you. The first step is to reach out to Barbara below so she can explain the parameters and procedures to be married at Church of the Holy Spirit. We congratulate you and wish you much joy.
