I’d like to share some thoughts about the most inspiring movie of 2008, “Fireproof.”
1. Every right relationship begins and continues with Jesus. Caleb received Christ before he embarked on a journey to win his wife back to a loving, healthy relationship. Don’t ever think that Jesus is good only for saving you from your sins. He is not just Savior, but Lord. His salvation is not just at the beginning. He does not save you only from the penalty of your sin, but also from its power in your marriage.
2. A changed husband (wife) can change a hostile marriage. Caleb applied the instructions in, “The Love Dare,” on a daily basis. He stopped watching pornographic shows on the internet, indicating true repentance. Slowly, he ceased reacting to his wife with his usual angry outbursts. He resolved to do what is right, and the Lord gave him the power to do it.
