The family’s origin was seen to be in creation and even in the Trinity, and its restoration in godliness is through the gospel of grace alone. The addresses warned that the family is not to be idolised, for human marriage is only for this age and not the next (Matthew 22.30), and marriages are a picture of the eternal union between Christ and his beloved church (Ephesians 5.22-33). There are times in the lives of many of God’s people when they must forsake their family for Jesus’ sake (Luke 14.26).
