bethke on on marriage

Jeff Bethke is becoming more popular with these creative and pithy youtube videos. I gave his Rob Bell parody Jesus Wins a like, his Why I hate Religion, But Love Jesus a dislike (although it has some super points) and now his Sex, Marriage, & Fairytales a like.

Some lines that caught my ear:
  • God's first priority is to making you holy.
  • If your marriage rests on anything but Jesus, it's resting on something broken.
  • Put down the controller. How about you lead her with grace instead of trying to control her?
  • Become friends first before you ever become lovers. Pursue Jesus as your foundation before you get under the covers.
  • It's not the love that sustains the promise, it's the promise that sustains the love.
  • You don't fall out of love as much as you fall out of repentance.
