ME AND MY REAL FAMILY: THE MARRIAGE MYSTERY

Message by Todd Lester - June 25, 2017

Ephesians 5:31-32 †As the Scriptures say, "A man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one." This is a great mystery, but it is an illustration of the way Christ and the church are one.
