Today you should read: Psalm 45
This psalm, written by the sons of Korah, is a love song. It tells of a mighty king who is strong, handsome, and victorious over his enemies. Then…here comes the bride. She is adorned with long flowing dresses and is unsurpassed in beauty. She is excited to become the wife of this mighty king and has joy and gladness in her heart as she makes her way to him.
This is a wonderful picture of two things, the first being marriage. Look at the man; he is a strong leader, willing to protect and provide for his soon-to-be wife and to be the sturdy rock she needs. Now, look at his bride: she is dressed in a magnificent white dress, her hair flowing just right, and her glow fills the room. She is ready to be the help-mate that God has made her to be and ready to follow her husband and to raise a family with him.
The second picture is that of Jesus and the church. A strong and mighty king, King Jesus, has defeated sin and death and is waiting in His glory in heaven for His bride, the church. He has made His bride to be beautiful and spotless. She is perfect and fit for a king. What a picture for us to think about today! We are a part of this church, this bride for King Jesus. May we live today a life worthy of such a calling, such a blessing. Let us walk continuously toward our king Jesus.
