I saw you in your distress and I loved you. I saw you at your best and I loved you. You are My special love and I will not spend eternity without you. I have paid the price for your life. I Am yours and you, beloved, are Mine.


“We love Him because He first loved us.” – 1 John 4:9

Through this revelation, John is saying that we, the Church, need to return to a lifestyle of being loved. We need to act like a bride – a beloved bride.

This verse is the beginning of a love story. It’s the story of a Bridegroom who chooses His beloved. He leaves His house, travels her home and offers her all that He has.

If she accepts His gift, what the Jews call “the bride price,” He goes back to His home and builds a house that the two of them will live in. It is the place of their dwelling – a place of relationship, intimacy and joy.

That’s what Jesus did for us. He came to this earth and offered you and I all that He had – His very life and eternal inheritance. When we, like so many others before us, accept this gift, we can be assured He is where He said He would be doing what He said He would do.

“In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” – John 14:2

My friends, our Bridegroom Jesus has been building your mansion for 2,000 years. He hasn’t forgotten us. On the contrary, that mansion is so personal, so individual to each of us, that He’s putting on the final details. 

He’s coming back. Are you prepared? Are you dressed and ready, watching day and night for His return because He’s coming soon. He’s coming for His bride. He’s coming for you.
