The Church, the Bride of Christ. That description conjures up images of radiant white bride, eyes sparkling with peace and harmony, right? Maybe that's why it's such a gut-punch when that Bride behaves more like a grade school bully or a hot tempered drill sergeant.
The Bride(zilla) of Christ is a verbal I.V. dripping with the mercy found only in Christ. Though you've been wronged, or perhaps wronged another, there is cause for great hope. The hurt is not the deepest thing. Grace is deeper still.
