When a bride and groom get married, the bride’s name (usually) changes immediately. One or both of their addresses change and often so do bank accounts. Other changes are more of a process: their other relationships change because of this new priority; their language changes from “me” to “we”; their schedules are different. When we follow Jesus and become his bride, some changes in us are immediate, and others are more of a process. We need to give ourselves and others grace for the process.
