C A Coates – The Bride, the Lamb’s wife – Suitable to the One who Suffered

Charles Coates

It is most touching to see that it is “the bride, the Lamb’s wife”; she is seen in suitability to the One who suffered here. He has traversed the path of suffering love even into death, for it was as the Lamb He died; He brought in divine love in the way of redemption, and to do so He suffered and died. The saints acquire suitability to the Lamb by being found in the path of suffering here. They “follow the Lamb wheresoever it goes.”

( C A Coates, Paignton, 1926.  Extracted from The Believer’s Friend Volume 18 )
