mawwiageThe BEST wedding clip of all time:

Once you have watched that clip, it simply stays with you forever … and changes every wedding ceremony thereafter.

When God first instituted marriage in Genesis, between Adam and Eve, there was no ceremony, no reception, and no government participation (there was no government).

“But for Adam no suitable helper was found. So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

The man said,
“This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called ‘woman,’
for she was taken out of man.”

That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.”
Genesis 2:20-25

Marriage is a covenant, and the Hebrew word for it, berith, means a coming together. It is a vow between a man, a woman and God. It is a covenant that God values so much, that He uses marriage to explain His love and promise to His people, how he sees the church, and His promises to each of us as believers. It is the oldest institution in  history.

The following video is from the wedding reception of Jefferson and Alyssa Bethke. Jefferson may look familiar to you because he is a popular spoken word poet with many videos on YouTube. Feel free to watch it all, but it is at 2:00 that Jefferson describes who invented marriage (God), and who it is about (not us). He also describes the biggest wedding yet to come.
