Scripture: Matthew 19:1–6, Romans 5:6–8, Philippians 3:4–10

Jesus our bridegroom: A claim about the reality and nature of the church’s union with Jesus

3 Points of Comparison: 

  • Intimacy with Jesus 
    • Jesus knows us completely and still loves us (Rm. 5.6-8)
  • Our shared status with Jesus
    • My debts became our debts; his righteousness became our righteousness (Pp. 3.4-10)
  • The permanence of our union with Jesus (Mt. 19.1-6)
    • Those who God has joined to Christ will not be separated 

Conclusion: God’s “Yes” to Humanity

  • Will you say Yes to Jesus?
  • If so, then have you embraced your new status in him?
