I love this verse! What a wonderful picture of my Jesus – coming for His Bride who has “made herself ready”. She will be prepared for her Groom when He comes. She will know His voice, she will know His ways, she will know His likes and dislikes – how? Because she will have spent countless hours with Him. She will have read and reread His love letters to her (which is His Word). Her heart will leap with desire over the things that makes His heart leap, and her heart will break over the things that break His heart. She longs to see Him face to face!
I love painting old churches – I love what they represent – the Bride. I’ll post more of them over the next couple of weeks.
