We must understand that He wants us so much more than we will ever want Him. What we feel for Him is a mere flicker of a flame compared to how His heart burns for us. His zeal for us is far more consuming than ours will ever be for Him, yes, even during the heights of passion when we are declaring our vows with tears streaming down our faces.
Know that His faithfulness towards us is far greater than our faithfulness towards Him. Our grip is feeble, but His is not. We are so weak, but He is strong, and He is able to keep us.
All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. (John 6:37, 39 NKJV)
He wants us. He has been waiting for His Bride since eternity’s past, and He WILL have what He has set out to possess. The fiery promise He has made to us is that He will be faithful to complete the good work He started.
If we will not harden our hearts towards Him, He will keep us to the end. In that day we will stand before Him, and it will be the gladness of His heart. That glorious day is everything He has desired for with an all consuming jealousy, everything all of heaven has been holding its breath for, and everything the entire creation has been groaning for.
Jesus will have His Bride.
