Read Psalm 45:10-17
10Bride of the king, listen to what I say—
forget your people and your relatives.
11Your beauty will make the king desire you;
he is your master, so you must obey him.
12The people of Tyre will bring you gifts;
rich people will try to win your favour.
13The princess is in the palace—how beautiful she is!
Her gown is made of gold thread.
14In her colourful gown she is led to the king,
followed by her bridesmaids, and they also are brought to him.
15With joy and gladness they come
and enter the king’s palace.
16You, my king, will have many sons
to succeed your ancestors as kings,
and you will make them rulers over the whole earth.
17My song will keep your fame alive for ever,
and everyone will praise you for all time to come.
This Psalm is a wedding Psalm for the would be queen (bride of the King). As Christians we understand that some of these psalms may refer also to the church as the bride of Christ. Are you working to make your Chrisitan community a beautiful bride for Christ?
Pray for the church, that it will be beautiful for God; pray that we will be loving and kind with one another and the world in which we live.
