Christ and His Bride
When you think of the church, how do you see it in your mind's eye? A building, a meeting or people?
Jo looks at Christ as the groom and we, the church as the bride. On their wedding day the groom and the bride each wants to do whatever it takes to make the other one happy. The bride makes herself beautiful for her groom, and the groom makes sure he looks his best for his bride. With Christ and the church it is actually the groom, Christ, who makes the bride, us - His church beautiful. Jo focuses on verses 28-33 in this talk.
