We were talking about this the other day or maybe Leigh and Beverly talked about it that Friday night at the cabin. I think that men need to get over it and realize that they too are the Bride of Christ. It goes much deeper than our earthly gender. We've had to much comfort in the Body of Christ. Will we be known by our gender on that great and terrible day? I don't think so. The question will be, "what did you do with my Son"? I know that if I had been a man on this earth, I would have wanted to be known as His Bride, a deep lover of Him and if that means kissing Him with the kisses of my mouth, so be it. I'm not trying to be offensive, just making a point. I don't think that is feminizing the church. I think that is truly being His Bride whether male or female. It's all the same in our Bridegroom's eyes!
