We have recently seen another beautiful royal wedding. I know we ladies just love to see the wedding dress, and what a beautiful dress it was. However, all the grandeur of this event is nothing in comparison to a coming Royal Wedding for everyone who is part of the Bride of Christ.

I often wanted to get married and am sometimes saddened that I never found the right person. Of course, I wanted that specially made wedding dress to wear and to walk down the isle to meet my groom and spend the rest of my life with him. I am sure there are people reading this who have felt the same way.

I was about to marry once but it was called off 10 days before the wedding. God gave me two dreams that I wouldn’t marry this man and that if I did the marriage wouldn’t work. Yes, I was sad I couldn’t wear my wedding dress. Plus, I’d sewed new outfits for the honeymoon and don’t even have photos to look back on in later life.

All that wedding preparation was such a waste however, none of this compares to knowing Jesus and knowing that I am part of His bride. Preparing for Him as a bride is never wasted.

We are the Bride of Christ

We have to be in constant preparation to be ready for when Jesus comes to fetch us or when our numbered days on this earth come to an end. We are His bride and His beloved. Christthe Bridegroom, has sacrificially and lovingly chosen us,  the Church to be His bride (Ephesians 5:25–27). 

You are Christ’s bride in waiting. Now ladies that does not mean you need to go out and buy a wedding dress. God already has your Heavenly clothes. But we are to go out and be soul savers. We have to be a living testimony of what God wants for us. Our crowns are waiting for us in Heaven. Jesus is even preparing a banquet for us, His bride.

How do you think Jesus would want us as His Bride to prepare? Here are seven things we need to be doing…

Seven ways to prepare for our Bridegroom

  • Be in our knees praying;
  • In every decision we make, we must ask ourselves, what would Jesus do?;
  • Read your Bible;
  • Renew your mind daily;
  • Take up your Cross and follow Jesus;
  • Listen to the still small voice and be obedient to the Holy Spirit; and
  • Be ready in season and out of season.
PRAYER

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that I am Your Son’s Bride. Thank You Jesus that You are my Bridegroom. Help me me to walk daily as Your Bride. Thank You that I can always turn to You for even the smallest of things, and that You know every detail of my life and also what I need.

Thank You that you are preparing for us, Your bride. Help us to prepare for You and be a shining light. Thank You God that in all I do I will bring You joy and blessings and testimonies to honour You. I pray this in Jesus’s beautiful and powerful name. Amen.
