Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
Revelation 21:1-4
 
This beautiful passage points to what we, the church, look forward to with great anticipation. Through Christ’s atoning sacrifice on the cross for our sins, through faith in His completed work, we can be brought into the family of God and look forward to being restored to Him.

Who is the “bride of Christ?” We are! The church, both our local body and those around the world who call upon the name of Christ, are all part of this beautiful bride who is being sanctified by the work of the Spirit in preparation for this future coming of the groom, Jesus Christ.

What a wonderful celebration that future wedding feast will be! It is with great joy that we enter into this new sermon series to learn all about ourselves, the church, the bride of Christ.
