Unearthing the surpassing riches of Christ

Getting Love and Commitment In the Right Order

As you gave the ring to one another and have now
received it a second time from the hand of the pastor,
so love comes from you, but marriage from above,
from God. As high as God is above man,
so high are the sanctity, the rights, and the promise of love.
It is not your love that sustains the marriage,
but from now on, the marriage that sustains your love.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Letters and Papers from Prison, 27–28

Quoted in This Momentary Marriage by John Piper, page 18
