Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. – Isaiah 60:1
The glory of God is His love and it is starting to cover the whole earth. This glory will shine brightest through those who are willing to love Jesus with all their hearts: the Bride of Christ. God is calling His people to arise and take their place as His bride. We become children of God by right of our new birth through faith in Jesus. But we only become the Bride of Christ by right of the marriage covenant–an exclusive commitment to wholehearted love and unity with God. This is not a covenant for the casual believer. It costs us everything, but the reward it brings is a life of selfless love, joy, and unity with our Bridegroom.
This book contains 30 devotional studies that reveal God’s passion to bring us into wholehearted love and intimacy with Jesus. Each chapter has reflections that are designed to connect readers with their Bridegroom. It takes around 20 minutes to do a chapter and the reflections. If you are not yet ready to invest this much time in your relationship with Jesus, this book is not for you. But if you are hungry for the love of God; if you are willing to seek Him as your Bridegroom for the next 30 days, then you will see your life forever transformed. This transformation will not come only from what you learn, but from encountering Jesus and receiving His glorious love. Jesus is waiting. If you can hear His call to arise and come away, this book is for you.
