Flyleaf's New Video- Beautiful Bride

Below is a "Journal Entry" from Flyleaf's new album, Memento Mori. It describes what this song is about. "Beautiful Bride" is reminding believers in Jesus Christ of the unity we have and how God has designed each of us to glorify Him with our lives.

Beautiful Bride

The Passerby Army's mission is to bring peace, faith, hope, freedom, and above all love to the entire world. Our mantra, is "Memento Mori". These words remind us that our mission is urgent, and that when death comes to anyone, at 18 or 80, a mortal life proves to be short. We are reminded by Memento Mori to never waste a moment without advancing the mission. The fate of our children and grandchildren depends on how we use the time we are given. At a recent gathering my heart broke as I looked over the Passerby Army. These men and women were ready to live and die for love, yet somehow they had gone from fighting the enemy to bickering and fighting each other. I thought through what I could say to encourage them again. Witha ll the stregnth of my voice and my heart I commanded: "Unified Diversity! Functioning as one Body..."

"I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk i a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit- just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call- one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all."
Ephesians 4: 1-6
