Thinking about it:

The promise to honor and cherish, to give one’s life to another, is made in the traditional wedding ceremony. Weddings are big business. Thousands of dollars are poured into the special ceremony and reception. The best intentions are sincerely expressed in the charge, the vows (the “I do’s”), and the ritual of the grand celebration. The “honeymoon” phase is the afterglow of the newness and romance of it all. Then, after the wedding, comes the marriage. If one does not follow through with the “I do’s” the marriage turns sour and miserable, all to often to the point of breaking up.

In His scriptures, God calls the Church the “bride of Christ.” He fulfills His vows to us through Christ’s death and resurrection, giving His body that we might be His Body (Ephesians 5:25-30)! His Holy Spirit enables His written Word to become the Living Word in us as we grow in the “grace and knowledge” (II Peter 3:17-18) of Him. The tools He gives us are the divinely inspired scriptures, prayer, worship, and the fellowship of believers.

What important tips do the following passages reveal to us in regards to our faithfulness?

  • Ephesians 4:11-16
  • Ephesians 5:15-20
  • Ephesians 5:25-30
  • I Thessalonians 5:11-15
  • Hebrews 3:12-14
  • Hebrews 10:23-25
  • II Peter 3:17-18

Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

  • I Corinthians 12:27

The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!”

  • I Corinthians 12:21

PRAY: Thank the Lord that He gave His body so you could be His Body! Commit to avail the Holy Spirit of the ordained “tool” of Godly fellowship for His work in your life.
