Colossians 1:22 ERV "But now he has made you his friends again. He did this by the death Christ suffered while he was in his body. He did it so that he could present you to himself as people who are holy, blameless, and without anything that would make you guilty before him."
Lots of guys would choose a well educated and probably rich lady over one who's an illiterate. Not many guys are interested in bringing a lady up to par, they prefer a "ready made" woman for a wife.
But God did otherwise. We were sinners, lost, hopeless and spiritually dead, but God, being so in love with us, and knowing that we could not approach Him as we were, sent His Son to shed His blood for our cleansing, and made us the bride He desired us to be. Hallelujah!
God loves us much more than we can ever imagine, and His desire is for us all to spend eternity with Him. We must keep ourselves as beautiful as He first made us; holy, blameless, and without anything that would make us guilty before Him. Amen.
