“I know what it is to live entirely for and with what I love best on earth. I hold myself supremely blest – blest beyond what language can express; because I am my husband’s life as fully as he is mine. No woman was ever nearer to her mate than I am: ever more absolutely bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh.” – Jane Eyre, Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte)
Just as God took woman from the side of man, so He takes the Church from the side of Christ. For those in Christ, we are bone of His bone, and flesh of His flesh. We have been made kind of His own Kind. Now we can know what it is to live entirely for and with what we love best on earth. We are Christ’s life as fully as He is ours. And we are supremely blest!
