  • Bride John Newton Jesus my Shepherd, Brother, Friend, My Prophet, Priest and King Jesus my Shepherd, Husband, Friend
  • Slide 11
  • Bride Your Maker is your husband the Lord Almighty is his name - Isaiah 54:5 (TNIV) I will make you my wife forever, showing you righteousness and justice, unfailing love and compassion. I will be faithful to you and make you mine, and you will finally know me as the Lord - Hosea 2:19-20 (NLT) John the Baptist & Jesus For I am jealous for you with the jealousy of God Himself. I promised you as a pure bride to one husband Christ - 2Corinthians 11:2 (NLT)
  • Slide 12
  • Bride You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptised into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus Galatians 3:26-28 (TNIV)
  • Slide 13
  • Bride Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. This is a profound mystery but I am talking about Christ and the church Ephesians 5:25-27 & 32 (TNIV)
  • Slide 14
  • Army For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms - Ephesians 6:12 (NIVUK) Dont let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ - Colossians 2:8 (NLT) - Colossians 2:8 (NLT)
  • Slide 15
  • Army For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ - 2Corinthians 10:3-5 (TNIV) - 2Corinthians 10:3-5 (TNIV)
  • Slide 16
  • Points to Ponder Everyone has sinned and fallen short of God's glorious standard, and all need to be made right with God by his grace, which is a free gift. They need to be made free from sin through Jesus Christ. God sent him to die in our place to take away our sins. We receive forgiveness through faith in the blood of Jesus' death - Romans 3:23-25 (NCV) - Romans 3:23-25 (NCV)
  • Slide 17
  • Points to Ponder But I have this complaint against you. You dont love me or each other as you did at first! Look how far you have fallen! Turn back to me and do the works you did at first - Revelation 2:4-5 (NLT) - Revelation 2:4-5 (NLT)
