Being the bride of Christ

“In that day”, declares the Lord, “you will call me ‘my husband’; you will no longer call me ‘my master’.” Hosea 2:16

If we were to work for someone who owned their own business, we would work for a wage. We would have obligations, duties and a responsibility to our employer. There would be rules and guidelines to follow. We would not expect a share of the profits.

On the other hand if we were married to the boss and working with him, our whole attitude would be different, even though we may be doing exactly the same things. No longer would we see our work as an obligation, a duty or a responsibility. Our attitude would be one of wanting to work because we would be sharing a future together.

The good news of the gospel is – we are married to the boss! In Ephesians 5:25-33 and Revelation 19:7-8 & 21:9, we are told that the Church is the bride of Christ, “the wife of the Lamb”. From God’s perspective, all of God’s people are as special as a dearly loved bride.

Titus 2:13-14 talks about us being “eager to do what is good”, because of what God has done for us. We also have, as God’s people, an inheritance (a share in the profits!). In Ephesians 1:14 we are told that we have been sealed with the Holy Spirit “who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance.”

What an amazing privilege to be “married” to a wealthy, loving boss.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
