The final word picture to help us better understand God, is perhaps the most startling and difficult to comprehend, even shocking.
In this word picture, we consider him as the groom (the Bible often uses the word “bridegroom”) and us as his bride. As followers of Jesus, that is, the Christ, we are even called “the bride of Christ.”
With us betrothed to him, we see a relationship filled with spiritual intimacy and ecstasy. In short, we are lovers. This may be a difficult image to comprehend or even consider, but it is the desire and longing of God to be in a close, personal relationship with us.
How awesome is that?
