Christ’s Beloved Bride
To the Lord Jesus His bride shall forever be altogether lovely for her robe is woven gloriously of His imputed righteousness.
How fair is her look of love toward Him with the eye of faith that He has imparted.
How sensitive is she to His message of substitution in the preaching of His mighty work of redemption.
How wonderfully she speaks of Him with a mouth that now evidences a new heart.
Christ Jesus the Lord has declared her to be His beloved, but in all that He has said about her, the bride can say but one thing in response to such a declaration of truth … “Praise be unto You that has loved me with an everlasting love…You have made me thus.”
