The Bible – His LOVE letter to us – how often are we absorbing and applying it to our lives?
His Voice – gently whispering to our spirit – how carefully are we listening and following?
His Peace – ever present, no matter what we face – are we accepting it or allowing the cares of this world to push it aside?
His All Consuming Fire – are we submitting ourselves to it’s purifying work or quenching it with the icy water of life?
His Spirit – are we in tune to His guidance and direction or are we to busy making our own plans?
His Shepherds – are we yielding ourselves to their supervision, their teaching, their pastor-heart, or are we just attending the service and going our own way the rest of the week?
His Body – our brothers and sisters-in-Christ – are we embracing them, seeking relationships with them, allowing ourselves to be mentored and mentor others in turn, or do we have the “us four and no more” mentality?
His Altar – are we truly laying ourselves down, daily, at it in prayer? Submitting our lives into His plan for us, our wants, dreams, wishes, desires? Or are we ignoring Him and plowing ahead with our own ideas?
Dear ones . . . we ARE the bride of Christ . . . our Bridegroom awaits . . . are we preparing for His coming, for the marriage feast, in intimate times in His presence, or are we busy with ‘things’ and toss Him a fleeting moment or two and carry on with ‘business as usual’?
Are we faithful to Him with full devotion, or are we adulterous in our relationship by placing our affections elsewhere first?
He MUST be first in our lives.
He MUST be first in our activities.
He MUST be first in our thoughts.
He MUST be first in our plans.
He has proven His love for us, His bride . . . are we even showing Him love in return?
Being the bride of Christ should be the most exciting, all consuming thought in our hearts . . . to be preparing for our Bridegroom . . . what preparations are you making?
