Marry A Prostitute?
"...to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word..."(Ephesians 5:26)
Scripture Focus: Hosea 2:16-3:1
A photographer once offered prostitutes a free portrait at his studio. Interestingly, the women almost unanimously chose from the proposed wardrobe a white wedding dress for the photograph. We, too, are prostitutes in a wedding dress. We are prostitutes in God's eyes, since spiritually we run after other "husbands," lusting for what idols offer us-fame, fun, money, or respect from the "in crowd."
But Jesus does so much more than the photographer could do! A photograph cannot change our inner state. The women's desire for purity is very moving, but only our husband Jesus truly purifies us, washing our hearts clean and clothing us in His white robe of perfection. "You were adorned with gold and silver, and your clothing was of fine linen and silk and embroidered cloth... You grew exceedingly beautiful and advanced to royalty" (Ezekiel 16:13).
By faith in His death and resurrection, we spiritual prostitutes can become His pure bride! If you have never accepted Jesus' wedding dress, there is still time.
Insight: Of all the items you could put on, clothe yourself, most importantly, with Jesus christ.
