Paul used marriage imagery when he wrote to the Corinthians about the importance of knowing their value to Jesus as his bride:
I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him (2 Corinthians 11:2).
Remember what you are worth!
The Bible says:
You were bought... not with something that ruins like gold or silver, but with the precious blood of Christ... (1 Peter 1:18-19 NCV).
Ever feel like you have nothing?
Just look at the gifts he has given you:
- His Holy Spirit to dwell in you.
- His church to encourage you.
- His Word to guide you.
You have been chosen by Christ. He has claimed you as his beloved. You are...
- Spoken for.
- Set apart.
- Called out.
You are a holy bride!
