Timothy Keller writes:
“Romance, sex, laughter, and plain fun are the by-products of this process of sanctification, refinement and glorification. Those things are important, but they can’t keep the marriage going through the years and years of ordinary life. What keeps the marriage going is your commitment to your spouse’s holiness. You’re committed to his or her beauty. You’re committed to his greatness and perfection. You’re committed to her honesty and passion for the things of God. That’s your job as a spouse. Any lesser goal than that, any smaller purpose, and you’re just playing at being married.” ~ The Meaning of Marriage
We recently received a question about how marriage and the pursuit of holiness work together. While we compose some of our thoughts we wanted to open up discussion with you. How do you respond to this quote and the idea that marriage is designed to be part of your path towards personal holiness?
