{ Day 143 }

For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. —2 Corinthians 11:2, NKJV

The revelation of the Bridegroom was preached by the apostle Paul. Paul saw his ministry as betrothing unbelievers through conversion to a Bridegroom God and presenting them as a pure bride. In this ministry identity, namely, as friends of the Bridegroom, we operate very differently than those without this revelation. We get our identity through the power of relationship with God Himself. When I consider God the Bridegroom, I first think about His desire for us. Oh, to be exhilarated with God's love! Nothing is more invigorating than the revelation of the God filled with pleasure, the God who has intense desire for human beings, and the God who woos us through spiritual pleasures.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

God, give me a new revelation of Yourself as the Bridegroom awaiting me, His bride. Draw my heart to You, and allow me to help prepare the way for others to become Your bride as they accept the sacrifice of Your Son.

Friends of the Bridegroom are fearless because
we are connected to something far bigger
than ourselves.
