Covenant vs. Contract in Marriage

Covenant is about what's best for the other person; contract is about what's best for yourself. In a covenental marriage, a couple is in covenant with God through faith in Jesus, and then to be in covenant with one another, and the husband is to lovingly serve and lead the wife as Jesus lovingly serves and leads the church.

This clip is excerpted from the sermon "Men and Marriage," part 3 of Mars Hill Church's Real Marriage sermon series, based off the book of the same name by Pastor Mark and Grace Driscoll. It was preached by Pastor Mark at Mars Hill Downtown Bellevue and released on January 30.
