IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
The church is a bride and I love her. The church is beautiful and you are part of the church. And so you are part of my plan to see my kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. Honor marriage as it, too, is a picture of the unity I desire for all. In marriage and in the church, I long for your hearts, your affections, and your attention. Submit to me and you will easily submit to one another. Serve me and you will joyfully serve one another.
Jesus, the bridegroom, has modeled kingdom living. He was truthful, faithful, and upright. Follow his example, empowered by the Spirit, and you will be part of a team who perpetuates Christ’s memory through all generations. In doing so, the nations will recognize my love and power and plan and offer praise for ever and ever. Your life has significance. Today is meaningful. Walk with me and encourage other believers to live empowered by the Spirit.
Invest in the local church. Start serving at church and encourage others to do so. Find someone at church who is not serving and invite them to serve on your team and be part of God’s plan, the bride of Christ!
