The Wedding

February 16, 2016

The Bible tells us that we Christians are the bride of Christ. That may be a hard concept for some to understand. Think about a wedding. The groom loves the bride and she loves him. The bride has on beautiful apparel. She is beautiful. 

They vow to love and to cherish, for better or for worse, richer or poorer, in sickness and in health till death do they part. It is a choice she makes when she says “I do or I will” take this man to be my husband. 

We made a choice when we accepted Jesus to be our Savior. As His beloved we should vow to love Him, cherish Him, for better or worse, in sickness and in health until He comes to take us to be with Him. Just as marriage has its joys and sorrows, so the Christian life has its joys and trials also. The good news is that He is always with us. He will never leave or forsake us and He is waiting to welcome us to His wedding feast.

Revelation 19:7  Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
