Becoming the Bride of Christ
A Personal Journey
Ms Marilynn Dawson
"I saw a tidbit one day, of someone not understanding why anyone would sing of falling in love with God, or why anyone would sing of God desiring to love us. They asked if they should glorify God or send Him flowers. . .
God says in Scripture that He longs to take us under His wings as a mother hen gathers her chicks (Psalm 91:4, Matthew 23:37). God says He sings over us and rests in His love as He does so (Zephaniah 3:17). God says He thinks about us all day long, that we are always on His mind ( Psalm 139). God says He sees our pain, gathers our tears in a bottle ( Psalm 56:8), and seeks to meet our needs as we give place to Him in our lives, and many times without us even being aware that He's caring for us so much. "
This book can be read as an account of the lessons God's actively teaching me, or it can be engaged in as a personal or group Bible study.
There is quite a bit of Scripture in every chapter, as well as questions to help a person appropriate these lessons into their own life.
One of my goals is to share a story that men as well as women can read and glean from. Too often it seems presentations on the Bride of Christ have been geared toward women when Scripture says the Church, who is referred to as the Bride of Christ, is made up of men and women. I write from a women's perspective of course, but it's my desire that men will be able to gather helpful insight, not just women. After all, we are all called to live out the commands of Christ in our everyday life.
Will you join me as we learn to live this journey of Faith as the Bride of Christ in everyday life?
