Whether you are married or not as a believer in Christ, you have a bridegroom in Jesus and He is waiting for you to have an intimate relationship with Him. So often God’s love for Israel and Jesus’ for the church is compared to marriage. While marriage in the natural can have it’s share of problems, it will never be that you cannot trust your heart to Jesus. Actually, no man is really going to be exactly like Him, though they are to aspire to it.
Let’s talk about being a peaceful bride of Christ. He left you His peace in John 14:27. He speaks peace to you and to your heart and soul through the Holy Spirit. He calls you beloved and lets you sleep. Psalm 127:2 He offers you rest. Matthew 11:28-30. He has given us His love and spiritual gifts if we follow love and desire them. 1 Corinthians 12.
We are to pursue peace, the Prince of Peace has pursued us and caught up to many of us. He sweeps us off our feet. Psalm 34:14, of course that also means to avoid evil, and Hebrews 3:12 warns us how our hearts can become hardened, evil and even unbelieving.
So many things can happen to women who choose to believe in Jesus , and who choose to love. while another Proverb says the heart is deceitful, a believing heart should not be. However, I had the discussion of why Christians lie, they do you know, look at Ananias and Sapphira. These hearts are still walking in the flesh and not the Spirit. God cannot lie and the Holy Spirit will never deceive you, exactly why you need to rely on him before getting married or ask His help if you already are.
God is love and peace, and sent His Son to bring peace, not like the world gives it became a sword and divisive. Not like a house divided, Jesus wants to add to heaven but we must realize His kingdom is not of this world, it is spiritual. He wants a resting and peaceful bride.
Like husbands and wives, families, we should not be in a spiritual war with each other. He wants His peace to rule and reign in our hearts by His grace and Spirit. Jesus is our beloved bridegroom and spiritual husband and He cares for us like no one can. Let’s look a few verses and enjoy a Pinterest board.
A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay/ cancer in his bones.
He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD. Proverbs 18:22
Jesus found us, as a bride we want to be good and do good for Him, God favors us and so does Jesus, and our husbands in the natural as well, a healthy and peaceful marriage between a man and woman centered in the love Christ is a threefold cord not easily broken and two are better than one.
Proverbs 31:11, read different translations. We are to be a crown to a husband and to Jesus.
The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he lacks nothing of value.
