THE BELIEVERS IDENTITY V: THE BRIDE OF CHRIST.

EPH. 5:25-30
(25) Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and
gave himself up for her (26) to make her holy, cleansing her by the
washing with water through the word, (27) and to present her to himself
as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but
holy and blameless. (28) In this same way, husbands ought to love their
wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. (29)
After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it,

ISA. 62:5 as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God
