Let The Bride Of Christ Make Herself Ready

As Christians, we believe that we are the bride of Christ. We have been betrothed to Jesus, and we are preparing ourselves to be espoused to Him. But how do we make ourselves ready for this great day? What does it mean to be a pure and holy bride? In this sermon, we will discuss how we can prepare ourselves to be the bride that Jesus is looking for.

Seek God with all your heart

The first step in making ourselves ready for the Bridegroom is to seek Him with all our heart. This means setting aside time each day to pray, read the Word of God, and worship Him. As we seek God with all our heart, He will reveal Himself to us and transform us into His likeness. We must also be willing to obey His commands and follow His leading.

Cultivate a spirit of holiness 

As the bride of Christ, we are called to be holy. This means living a life that is set apart for God, free from sin and unrighteousness. We must cultivate a spirit of holiness by walking in obedience to the Word of God and allowing the Holy Spirit to work in our lives. We must also be willing to confess and repent of our sins, and seek the forgiveness of God. 

 Develop a heart of love

As the bride of Christ, we are called to love others as He loves us. This means developing a heart of love, compassion, and kindness towards others. We must be willing to forgive others, even as God has forgiven us, and show mercy and grace to those in need. We must also be willing to share the love of Christ with others, and bring them into the knowledge of the truth. 

Maintain an attitude of watchfulness 

As the bride of Christ, we must maintain an attitude of watchfulness, and be ready for the return of our Bridegroom. We must be awake and alert to the signs of the times, and be prepared to meet Him at any moment. This means living our lives in such a way that we are always ready to stand before God, without fear or shame. 

 Be filled with the Holy Spirit

Finally, as the bride of Christ, we must be filled with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the one who empowers us to live a life that is pleasing to God, and to be witnesses of Jesus Christ. We must be filled with the Holy Spirit, and allow Him to lead and guide us in all our ways. This means being sensitive to His voice, and obeying His promptings. 

 Conclusion

In conclusion, let us make ourselves ready for the Bridegroom. Let us seek God with all our heart, cultivate a spirit of holiness, develop a heart of love, maintain an attitude of watchfulness, and be filled with the Holy Spirit. The time is short, and the hour is late. Let us be the bride that Jesus is looking for, pure and holy, and ready to meet Him when He comes. May God bless and keep you always. Amen. 

The Gospel Message

The Lord Jesus Christ is alive and well today, and able to do all things. All power is given Him, and through His name, we are forgiven, and through the shedding of His blood our sins are remitted, and that His Word stands as true today as it did 2000 years ago. Repentance of one's sins, water baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and being baptized with the Holy Ghost is His divine specific plan of salvation.
