“Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come and his bride has made herself ready.” – Revelation 19:7
We are the Church. We are the bride of Christ. As Jesus’ bride, let’s prepare ourselves for him. A bride’s desire is for her groom alone. Our desire (as his Church) should be for Jesus alone. No one else. He should be our one desire. There can be no other idol before Jesus. Not ministry, not our jobs, not money, not success and not even our families. Christ should be unabashedly, unashamedly first in our lives. Our focus, desire and love should be for him and him alone.
In our relationship with Jesus, we need to aim for intimacy with him. Let’s actively practice the presence of God in our lives. In whatever we do, have him in mind. Do your work for Jesus. When you’re raising up your children, remember that he’s there with you. When you minister in church, know that he’s ministering through you. Spend time with Jesus whenever, wherever.
Action Item of the Day: Take some time out, find a private place and ask God to simply fill the place with His presence as you commune with Him.
