Runaway Bride: Are you living for Jesus or are you running from Him?
Have you ever sat in a church service week after week but went home and continued to live a life outside of Christ? Have you ever led a bible study and looked like you “were perfect” but you were suffering silently in sin? Have you ever just ran from God all together? If so, then this book is for you. If you have ever felt that way, you’re not alone. Heather Lindsey tried to run from God for years as she sat in the pews at church on Sunday Morning. She realized that it was not enough to just sit in a building and call herself a Christian, however, that is exactly what her life showed. She was running from Christ and into the arms of this world. Jesus Christ is returning for His bride and you are His bride. He wants your loneliness, discontentment, pride, depression, suicidal thoughts, dysfunctional relationships, hurt, pain, love of money, people bondage, and every other area of your life. At times, we can hold onto these things while ignoring the beautiful covenant Jesus gave us that bonds us together with Him in beautiful marriage throughout eternity. Jesus can return for us at any moment. Will we be ready? Will we serve in the church our whole lives and then hear Him say, “Depart from me, I didn’t know you?” Will you continue to run from relationship to relationship and ignore His desire to lead you to your one day spouse? Will you continue to hate your earthly marriage? Remember, all of these things on this earth are temporary and our groom is coming back for His bride, so it’s vital that you are not distracted by the cares of this world. Join Heather as she challenges you to get prepared to meet our groom face-to-face.
