Oh To Be Wise Meditations
A Beautiful Bride. Jesus is coming back for a beautiful bride pure and holy. Are we preparing ourselves through the process of sanctification? The Holy Spirit is preparing hearts to meet our risen LORD and Savior. You can see the Spirit of Christ moving the Apostle Paul as talks about this with the Corinthians. 2 Corinthians 11:2 I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him. Amen. Christ loves the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault. Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation, if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven. Jesus, is making everything new and beautiful in his perfect and holy time. Be confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. You call me beautiful Jesus. I love the way you look at me! You call me beautiful as you take my ashes and give me your beauty.
