For years I would hear people say that Jesus was coming back for a church without spot or blemish. The implication was that the church better get itself together. This is taken from Ephesians 5:25-27. The verses say nothing about Jesus coming back or the church getting it together. In reality these verses talk about Jesus as a Husband and the church as His bride. The lesson is that He sanctifies or sets her apart so that He can present her to Himself without spot or blemish. In other words it is His redemptive work; not the church getting its act together. This is something that He has already done through His death, burial, and resurrection. Notice verse 25 which states AS Christ loved the church. He is not going to love the church because He already loves the church. You are so loved and set apart to Him right NOW!
