“Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, His body, and is Himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.
Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that He might present the church to Himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.
In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of His body. “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.” (Ephesians 5:22-33 ESV)
The following video displays the most Christ-centered wedding vows I’ve ever heard. I pray you are encouraged and pushed toward the Lord while you watch as we are given a snapshot of His love for His bride (the church) through the covenant of marriage between Jacob and Amanda.
(Side note: I don’t know these people. I found this video on pinterest and cried like a small child watching them pledge their lives to each other in God’s beautiful Spirit. I can’t help but imagine just how much God will bless them and their marriage, though sure to be plagued with trials as each marriage is, because of their commitment to Him and example to everyone who sees them.)

Isn’t God good. We as unworthy as we are, have been saved by His redemptive power.
