The Bride of Christ

Bible Text: 2 Cor 11: 2 | Preacher: Matt Small | Series: The Church | For I am jealous for you with the jealousy of God himself. I promised you as a pure bride to one husband—Christ.
2 Cor 11:2
The church is often referred to as the ‘Bride of Christ’ and yesterday we looked at what the bible has to say on this and why. Hopefully we were all encouraged as we were once again reminded that one day Jesus Christ is going to return for his bride.
Although we don’t know when he will return we we do know that the bible calls us to be ready, alert and watchful. Let’s not be a people who have all our attention on this world without considering things above. With that in mind let us all consider what it means to be the bride of Christ, betrothed, loved and spoken for.

The Importance of the Church

Bible Text: Matthew 16:13-18 | Preacher: Matt Small | Series: The Church | It was Terry Virgo who said ‘The church of Jesus Christ is the apple of God’s eye, and is absolutely key to God’s plans for the future of the world’. This statement is echoed by millions of believers across the world who attest to the glorious position and future of the church in our time. On Sunday we started to look at the significant part the church plays in the affairs of human kind and the plans of God today and how, as followers of Jesus we are all part of his church which he is building.
