The Bride of Christ (522 words)
After this public profession, the young woman is told that she has become the bride of Christ and must consecrate herself to God “until death”.
The Holy Scriptures state that the Bride of Christ or Body of Christ is comprised of those who are born again into a living relationship with God through Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12-14).
The Bible refers to this union as the “Church.” Over the centuries, the Bride of Christ has continued to grow as people are reconciled to the living God through the death of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary.
