Wedding Plans

Quite a few years ago, my family and I were getting ready to go to a wedding. Then we got a call that the bride had cancelled her wedding and told the groom’s mother, “I can’t marry your son.” She called off the wedding the very day she was to be married.

If we as Christians are called the bride of Christ, then we have a wedding coming up. And if 1000 years is just one day to God (2 Peter 3:8) then could it be that we are currently living in the day of the wedding—you know, the marriage supper of the lamb? Whether this is the day or not in God’s eye, people today are doing the same thing the girl in the story above did. They are cancelling the wedding with Yeshua (Jesus). They are telling the Father, “I can’t marry Your son. I know the bride price that was paid, but he is taking too long. I’m tired of fighting the good fight of faith and I just want to do things my way.”

Wow. I don’t know if you have ever experienced true passion. I don’t know if you have ever experienced a deep love for someone. But, maybe it is time that you rekindle it or ignite it for the first time—a deep love and passion for the only groom that matters. Maybe it’s time to return to that eager anticipation of a bride-to-be preparing for her big day. Maybe it’s time again to fall head over heels in love with your groom-to-be (Yeshua/Jesus) so you don’t find yourself saying to the Father, “I can’t marry Your son,” or foolishly say, “I missed the call to come.”

As always, continue your journey with joy!

Matthew 25:1-13: Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. As the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and slept. But at midnight there was a cry, ‘Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘Since there will not be enough for us and for you, go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.’ And while they were going to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was shut. Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us.’ But he answered, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.
