The Betrothed of Christ

2.Corinthians 1:20-22

God puts his “seal of ownership” on his people. His Church is his betrothed. What does that mean exactly?

It means we belong to God and no other. Just as a husband gives a ring to his bride-to-be. That ring says to all the others that she is taken. She is set on a particular path in preparation of that future day. That’s the idea of the Church. She is the betrothed of Christ. She has a new name, the name of Christ. She has a new identity which is bound up in Christ. And she is set on a particular path in preparation for a future day when she is united forever with Christ.
