I had a dream recently:  In the dream, I am at a church where a wedding is supposed to take place.  There is much theological talk going on, but I see no bride or groom.  I woke up, and the Holy Spirit told me that the Church is supposed to be getting ready for a wedding and a marriage, but they have little or no concept of their call as Bride and do not know how to accommodate the Groom.

We (the Church) are not a corporation or a seminary or an organization bound together by mere theology or ritual.  We are the BRIDE of Christ.  And we are headed towards a MARRIAGE.  This whole experience is supposed to be FILLED WITH ROMANCE and a fascination for our incomparable BRIDEGROOM!

Amazing Husband-to-be Jesus… Please send the Holy Spirit to break us out of our passivity, busy-ness, and self-centeredness.  PLEASE tell the Holy Spirit to bring warmth and passionate focus to our cold, distracted hearts and prepare us for your return!
