Above everything this world has attributed to the marriage culture, the heart of marriage has been so hidden.
We are Christ’s bride.
Simply, plainly, truthfully, beautifully, we are Christ’s bride.
The Father gave us to Christ. Kind of like a Father hands over his daughter to her groom.
Jesus Christ promises to protect us. Like a husband does a wife.
Jesus Christ promises to provide for us. Like a husband does a wife.
Jesus Christ says he will never leave us. Like a husband tells a wife.
Jesus Christ calls us beloved.
My sweet Jesus, hanging on the cross, is as a ring of solid gold. A promise.
My sweet Jesus physically showed us that He is devoted to us.
As a husband shows through a ring his devotion to his bride.
The Father prepares the kingdom for the procession. His kingdom is coming together for the day.
As our family prepares for the wedding day.
The trumpets will sound.
The angels applaud.
As He washes away our crimson stains, we are being dressed in white.
The purest of whites.
As the bride is clothed in white for the ceremony.
The Father’s covenants with us are as vows. Vows of faithfulness.
The Father vows to always be with us. To never forsake us.
Like a husband vows a wife.
The veil will be lifted. And we will see him face to face.
As the bride’s veil is lifted, as she sees her groom.
And we will be as one.
With our sweet, sweet Jesus.
A marriage between a man and a wife show a glimpse of Christ and His church.
The relentless pursuit.
The unconditional love.
That’s what marriage is about. It’s about Jesus.
It’s about showing the world Jesus’ devotion to us, His church.
Nothing more, nothing less.
He calls us beloved.
He is our love. Our life. Our devotion.
