The Bride of Christ

I can't wait to go to church today. I think that's a good thing. I haven't felt that in a while.

I've been reflecting lately on how the church IS the BRIDE of Christ.... as I wait eagerly to become Ben's wife, it has forced me to think about how Christ loves the church.

How often we can make the church out to be ugly, sinful, weak, blemished... all of which at times are true (we are sinner, living in a fallen world). But no one EVER says that about a bride. A bride is the essence of beauty and purity in the eyes of her beloved and wedding guests.

How many people i have heard say they love Jesus, but they are just fed up with the church. Jesus called her, his bride.
