This month we have a wedding to celebrate. The venue will have been chosen, the guest list will have been drawn up, the bride will have taken care in choosing her dress, wishing to look her best, as will the bride and groom’s parents. Guests will be buying new outfits and the women will be looking for hats! The planning of the wedding will have been going on for months, and at last the big day is approaching.
The Bible tells us of another wedding that will take place when Jesus comes again to take all the people who love Him to be with Him forever. The planning of this wedding has not just been going on for a few months, it has been going on forever. God planned before the foundation of the world that Jesus would come as a baby, grow up to be a man and die on the cross to atone for our sin, and that one day Jesus would return for all those who believe in Him. The guest list is drawn up and we are all invited because the Bible tells us that “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life” and that means everyone. To respond to our invitation, all we have to do is say “Yes” to Jesus, ask Him into our hearts to be our Saviour, and we can experience the greatest wedding of all time, when we can be decked in all our finery, the garments of salvation, the robes of righteousness and the garments of praise! Why not respond to your invitation today, ask Jesus to be your Saviour and make sure of your place at the wedding feast?
