Espoused to Christ
“. . . Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, unto the Lord our God.” Revelation 19:1b
I’ve never performed a wedding where there wasn’t a beautiful bride, but no bride can compare in beauty to the one to behold when Jesus returns to claim us, the Bride of Christ.
You see, when we were saved, we were espoused to Christ, and an espousal is a little bit stronger than an engagement. An engagement is a promise to marry, but an espousal is a promise that you belong to this person even though the marriage has not yet been consummated.
Every child of God already belongs to Him. When we become espoused to Christ, He gives us something better than an engagement ring. He gives us the Holy Spirit.
Read Revelation 19 then spend a few moments worshipping Him.
