heaven sees

by max lucado

“[Jesus] died so he could give the church to himself like a bride in all her beauty . . . pure and without fault.”  Ephesians 5:27

From our perspective, the church isn’t so pretty. We see the backbiting, the squabbling, the divisions. Heaven sees that, as well. But heaven sees more. Heaven sees the church as cleansed and made holy by Christ.

Heaven sees the church ascending to heaven. Heaven sees the Bride wearing the spotless gown of Jesus Christ.
