Singleness & Marriage Point to the Real Prize

Singleness and marriage come with their own set of struggles in this life; both of them bring blessing as they point to the real prize:

“Christian marriage is a testimony of the utterly faithful and unchanging love of God for his people in a permanent covenant relationship with him; Christian singleness is a testimony to the complete sufficiency of Christ for the present age and gives visible witness to the hope of our eternal inheritance yet to come.”

— Barry Danylak, Redeeming Singleness: How the Storyline of Scripture Affirms the Single Life, (Wheaton: Crossway, 2010),  214.
