In marriage we are not called to love each other based on how much we deserve that love, and we are not called to serve each other based on how much we deserve that service. We are called to love each other based on the fact that we have been loved first, by Jesus.
We could be the worst person on this planet and Jesus doesn’t care about that. He takes us that way, but he doesn’t leave us there. He won’t reject you, but he will not leave you there in that mess of sin. In that way, marriage is a representation of God’s relationship with his church. I need to treat my marriage with the same mercy and grace that Jesus has shown to me.
