Most of us have heard that the church is the bride of Christ, but what does that mean to us? In marriage we make commitments to walk with each other through the good times and the bad. Are we doing the same with God in Jesus? Are we committed to remain faithful even when things aren't going the way we'd like them too? Do we run at the first challenge, or doubt in the struggles?
Are we communicating with God? For a marriage without communication can never be strong. The Bible says Cast all care upon Him for He cares for you. Share intimacy with God and your passions. God knows your heart so do not hide it from Him. Walk near to God and He will walk near to you.
Are we being faithful to God? Sin causes us to cheat on our relationship with God. For when we sin it separates us from the love of God, until his mercy draws us back. Would you cheat on your spouse? Then why do we cheat on God? Are we taking advantage of his love and mercy? What a merciful marriage God has promised to his unfaithful bride.
Where we have known marriage promises saying until death do us part, God's promise is unto eternal life. In the light of such great promises how should we treat our Lord? Be faithful to the Lord in all you do and the blessing of your holy marriage will shine unto the world. For there are few who are truly committed to be faithful to God. Be one of the few and receive God's blessing.

Read Romans 7 :1 -6
Romans 7:6 But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.

For he that lives in Spirit will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.

Not Biblical.

The Bride has nothing to do with a single individuals relationship as it maters to Christ, but is representative of a many as one. A corporate body.

"In our quest to rightly divide the Word of truth certain “words” and “phrases” are identified with the Prophetic program while others are associated with the Mystery. Interestingly, the “Bride of Christ” is an unscriptural phrase that is foreign to both programs of God. It is merely a theological expression that originated in the futile mind of man to describe those who will be present at the marriage of the Lamb preceding the kingdom (Rev. 19:7-9). The exact phrase used in prophecy is only found in the Apocalypse where one of the seven angels said to John: “Come hither, I will show thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife” (Rev. 21:9)."
