Volume 2: Becoming the Bride of Christ: A Personal Journey
by Ms. Marilynn Dawson. Edition Date:: 08/23/2012
“God’s been speaking to me so much about His love and how it affects areas of life I never really thought about before, areas that I’m realizing are almost impossible to achieve victory in apart from His love working in me. It honestly amazes me. Truly we can do nothing apart from the transforming work of God’s love through the Holy Spirit in our lives. All our best efforts apart from this love are just so much wood, hay and stubble. Imagine what would happen to our churches if more of us made this realization. I have to admit it’s a realization fraught with discoveries of just how soiled a heart can be and the needed washing and cleansing that has to happen as a result of the light of God’s love being shone on it. But as long as I can keep from recoiling, as long as I can keep choosing to present my heart wide open to my Lord, as long as I don’t shrink back from the transforming work going on in my life, then I can look forward to what is ahead.”

Becoming the Bride of Christ chronicles my personal journey as I learn to live with God as unseen Husband and Father in the home. It’s about learning to appropriate many Scriptural concepts that we’ve overly spiritualized, and bringing them down to where life is lived every day.

This book can be read as an account of the lessons God’s actively teaching me, or it can be engaged in as a personal or group Bible study.

There is quite a bit of Scripture in every chapter, as well as questions to help a person appropriate these lessons into their own life.

One of my goals is to share a story that men as well as women can read and glean from. Too often it seems presentations on the Bride of Christ have been geared toward women when Scripture says the Church, who is referred to as the Bride of Christ, is made up of men and women. I write from a women’s perspective of course, but it’s my desire that men will be able to gather helpful insight, not just women. After all, we are all called to live out the commands of Christ in our everyday life.

Will you join me as we learn to live this journey of Faith as the Bride of Christ in everyday life?
