The bride makes ready

Sermon on David and Bathsheba - 2 Sam 11:1-5

What Jesus says here to His disciples in the upper room (John 14:1-3), a groom would often say to his betrothed, in that day. Jesus is defining His relationship with us here, as akin to marriage. We are moving towards a wedding day, as the Bride of Christ. We have been bought at a price. Christ has shown us He can provide for us. He did it at the cross. He will give us all things with Him at our resurrection. We can rest fully in our faithful husband, to cleanse us by the water of the Word from every spot or wrinkle. He has gone to prepare a place for us, and He will take us to be with Him. Let us be jealous with a godly jealousy to be spotless for Him when He comes. Let us anticipate eagerly His coming, proclaiming His death for us until He returns.
