Wednesday of the Eleventh Week in Kingdomtide
The messianic joy of yesterday continues. Hebrews 1:8-9 applies these verses to Christ. From this understanding, the bride is the church, as the writer of Ephesians describes in 5:32.
If there is any event of great joy in human life, it is a marriage. Married love begins with a burst of energy and direction in life. The two look to the future together with anticipation and fresh joy.
For mystic writers, the soul is feminine before God. As the bridegroom, Christ seeks to carry you as his beloved into the house of his risen body. What plans he has for you as you move into the future together!
Picture the “oil of gladness” of verse 7 flowing over you, completely transforming you.
Wednesdays are dedicated to the Psalms.
