One Bride

October 18, 2007

As I was reading (“Disciplines of a Godly Man Disciplines of a Godly Man” by R. Kent Hughes) yesterday about the mystery of Christ and the church and its likeness to marriage, I got an idea.

Bride For me at least, that’s a whole new argument for salvation only through Jesus Christ. There is no other marriage. There is no other bride. Christ and the church are the only two involved. As in marriage, there is no addition or third wheel that is required or permitted.

It also brings new offense when others say they don’t need to be a member or participant in the church. If you aren’t a part of the bride of Christ, what kind of relationship do you have with Him? There are quite a few interesting implications to this. I think it will be a great help in determining my view on the end times as well.
