Today is Tuesday, July 17, 2018. Hi, my name is Adam Burton and you are listening to the Daily Devo; a short devotional designed to help you apply God’s Word to your life. The content comes from the Gospel Project.
Take a few moments and read: 1 Thessalonians 4:13–5:11.
Presently the church is in a state of sanctification where—in the words of Paul in Ephesians 5:27—it has stains, wrinkles, and blemishes. However, when Christ returns, the church will be transformed into a state of glorification. The “not yet” will finally become the already. At the marriage supper of the Lamb, the church (the bride of Christ) will be dressed in white reflecting perfection.
Think about this: How does the coming judgment of Satan, sin, and death strengthen us to live faithfully for Christ today? In what areas of your life is God sanctifying and purifying you as part of the bride of Christ?
