O how I love Thee well,

I am happy, it makes me glad

To rejoice at Thy birth.

 

2. O Sunday School, on the Lord's day,

Thy friend friendship suits me well,

Both young and old will sing Thy song,

We long for Sunday School.

 

3. O Sunday School, on the Lord's day,

Christ was Thy first teacher,

The Holy Spirit, great teacher,

Does manifest in thee.

This testimony is sure,

That God, the Father Almighty,

Poured His blessing on Thee.

Or if the clouds be black with rain,

I'll be in Sunday School.

I rejoice to see Thee,

Will thou pass over me today?

Without my being blest?

 

 

MEMORY VERSE: "For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ".-- 2Corinthians 11:2

 

 

BIBLE PASSAGE: Revelation 19:7-9

 

7. "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."

 

8. And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

 

9. Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed [are] those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!' " And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."

 

INTRODUCTION:

Just as marriage is the union between the bride and the bridegroom, so is the Union between the church and Christ (Ephesians 5:32). A wise bride will prepare herself for the coming of her husband (Matthew 25:1-10). In like manner, Christ expects the Church to be prepared for His coming (Revelations 21:2). The bride is the body if believers known as the Church that trusts in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour and have hope of eternal life.

Jesus Christ is the bridegroom who had sacrificially and lovingly chosen the church to be His bride (Ephesians 5:25). The bride of Christ must therefore understand the reason for, and the rudiments of her preparation.
