I am including this excellent video by Jefferson Bethke to my “The Marriage Triangle” tab. Listen as he vocalizes his poem, “Sex, Marriage, & Fairytales.” This is my favorite section:
So read Ephesians 5 whether husband or wife,
wife honor your husbands, husbands give up your life.
Just like Jesus gave Himself up for His bride the church,
So men lead by serving, by putting her first.
So die to self put your flesh on a life sentence,
Because you don’t fall out of love, as much as you fall out of Repentance.
Sex. Marriage, & Fairytales
By Jefferson Bethke
If you cannot view the video for any reason, go here to read the entire “Sex, Marriage, & Fairytales” lyrics.
