Revelation 19:6-7 (New International Version, ©2011)
6 Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
7 Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.
By now all of us have seen the spectacle and grandeur of the Royal Wedding of Prince William to Katherine Middleton. Many here in the States got up very early to take part in the excitement, awe and splendor of this occassion. Many were glad and rejoiced with the entire English nation as it celebrated this glorious day, when its monarchy shared this special and historic wedding.
One day soon, I would hope that all of us will be participants in another very glorious day, when our bridegroom Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, comes for His bride the church. We are the church the bride that by the bridegroom's sacrifice, has been cleansed from any spot or blemish, adorned for our wedding. Jesus has made this all possible through His love for us.
If you haven't yet shared in the engagement, why not seek the bridegroom? Why not accept the gift of the Lamb, so that you too may sit with the bride on her wedding day?
