Have you ever thought about being the bride of Christ? Have you thought about Jesus being so madly, crazy in love with you as a groom is with his bride on their wedding day? In this message, Pastor Mark explains a bit about this mystery Paul describes in the book of Ephesians and how when we can see our value as the bride of Christ, it will elicit a response of faithfulness to our Groom. Use this message to develop your faith and encourage growth in your relationship with Christ as you see the value you have to Him, your Groom.
“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless… This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church”
-Ephesians 5:25-27, 32 (NIV)
