The scripture for today, April 26 (4/26), is Galatians 4:26 as found in the new Testament of the Bible:
“But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.”
What is “the Jerusalem that is above”? Revelation 21:2 says, “I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.”
Aha! The New Jerusalem is the Bride of Christ! So, what is the Bride of Christ? Ephesians 5:25,27 says, “Husbands, love your wives just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy…and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.”
So, we see the New Jerusalem is the church which Christ brought to us out of heaven!
