Marriage Either Gets Bitter or Gets Better

You can bring life or death to that relationship by the words you choose. If we're not careful and don't seek the Holy Spirit, we can become bitter, and bitterness can mean death in a relationship because it grows. Pastor Mark talks about how his own bitterness was the issue that most negatively affected his and Grace's marriage for the longest period of time, and he regrets and grieves how this came out in his sermons during that time and asks for forgiveness.

This clip is excerpted from the sermon "Taking Out the Trash," part 5 of the Real Marriage sermon series. It was preached by Pastor Mark Driscoll at Mars Hill Church West Seattle and released online February 13, 2012.
