The Bride

This morning, when I woke the thought I had was about reconciling the bride with Christ, and Christ coming back for His Bride--me and you, His Body. As soon as I made my coffee and got to my study, I started to page through my bible. The verse in Revelation 19: 6-8 was highlighted:

Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters, and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: "Hallelujah! For the Lord God almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear." (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.)

A few days ago, my husband and kids were watching a movie and there was a bride dressed in the most stunning gown. I've seen the movie several times, but this is the first time that I had really noticed the details of her gown and veil. I thought she looked magical, the perfect bride.
I thought of her again this morning, as I envisioned myself preparing for the coming of the Lamb. His Robe of Righteousness around me, bright and clean. My life before Him, surrendered, rejoicing, and glad to give Him the glory!
Say That Again, Jesus, You are coming back for Your Bride. For me, and for all that love you.
