Becoming the Bride of Christ: A Personal Journey (Volume 5)
Volume Five: "Indeed. . . God sets the solitary in families. . . the lonely among those who care. . . Through the efforts of some of those among my church family's pastoral staff, the glass walls began to crumble. . . It was fearful at times, especially when big chunks of those walls fell down leaving me feeling exposed and vulnerable for a time. . . But God in His wisdom had placed the right people in my life at precisely the right time to help me through, to draw me out, and as a result, to bring me to that place of healing and restoration I keep talking about. In light of the past few years, this verse really is a comfort tonight." 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?
