Bride of Christ

 

Church, Bride of Christ

It was all that a young woman could do to maintain a conversation with a fellow Christian while waiting for her fiance’s jet to bring him home to her after a three-week separation. Once the plane was at the gate, conversation was impossible as the engaged woman stood watching, eagerly waiting for the moment when she could throw her arms around her loved one at last. As she peered down the passage, the friend with whom she had been talking earlier was heard to say, “What a beautiful picture of the church watching for the return of her bridegroom.” ── Michael P.
