"Falling in Love with the Prince of Life"
Prologue: Jesus has a
Proposal for Us
Jesus is the Creator. For by Him all things were
created, both in the heavens and on earth (Colossians 1:16).
He is the Author or Prince of Life (Acts 3:15).
Jesus created us--in hope that a bride would come forth from us.
A bride He could love. A bride He could share His creation with
and live happily ever after with.
When a man or a woman looks for a spouse they look for a fully
mature adult to wed--not a child. A child is unable to enter into
a bridal relationship. A child is not capable emotionally,
spiritually, physically, or in any other way to wed an adult.
God is also looking for a spouse, a fully mature spouse. God can
only enter into a bridal relationship with a spiritual adult. He
cannot enter into such a relationship with a child.
The Prince of Life entered into our world and released His
life through death--death on a cross. As He poured out His life
He gave birth to the world and all in it. And His life returns
to the world as a Bridegroom searching for a bride.
God is offering Himself to us. He has a proposal to make. Just
like Jesus knelt before the disciples and washed their feet--God
is on bended knee before us. He wants us. He’s asking us to be
It’s up to us to respond.
It’s up to us to grow into spiritual adults.
It’s up to us to say, “I do”.
