Jesus knows what it is like to be cheated on! He has been patient and long-suffering as all throughout history His beloved Israel has been unfaithful to Him, committing spiritual adultery over and over again. The heart of Jesus yearns for a faithful bride. He longs for a people who will have eyes only for Him with no other love coming between.
What is it that brings joy to a wife or husband? It is faithfulness—the ability to look into each other’s eyes and see trust. No lies or secrets! So it is with our relationship with Jesus. “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no [lack of gain]” (Proverbs [31:10]-11). Can Jesus look into our hearts and safely trust us?
