The Blog may be a little quiet for a week or two because I am getting married tomorrow!!!
Zoe and I will become husband and wife and we shall begin our wonderful life together. The Bible says in the book of Proverbs that ‘he who finds a wife, finds a good thing and receives favour from the Lord’ – well….I have found a very good thing and I am blessed to receive favour from our Lord Jesus Christ!
But in it all, in all the preperations, in all the decisons and making all we can ready…I’m reminded that there is still a greater day to come…still a greater marriage union to happen – the marriage of the Lamb!
That day when Jesus will return to this earth for the church in just the same way as a bridegroom comes for his bride – that will be the wedding of the ages! But before that day we have all to make ourselves ready. I am certain that if tomorrow I waited at the end of the aisle, turned to see Zoe and saw that she was wearing a binbag, had only done her make-up in the car, her hair was half done, was wearing trainers on her feet because she hadn’t got the right shoes in time….I’m certain that the thoughts running through my head will be: “is she totally serious about this,…about me….she doesn’t seem ready.”
That will not happen by the way – Zoe will look amazing (she always does!) as she has made herself ready. And so must we. We are called to be spotless, blameless, without blemish nor wrinkle but haveing made ourselves ready and beautiful for our groom, Jesus. It includes us all, it involves me and you – we all have to play our part to make ourselves ready.
I cannot wait for tommorow! It’s not just about a ceremony in Cardiff – when we are married all of the spiritual realms will acknowledge that the design of God for humans has come to pass and that covenant, representing the very father heart of God, has been expressed – God’s Kingdom rule in-acted on the earth as it is in heaven!
So bring on tommorow! Let the sun shine and let the celebrations commence. But moreso, come Lord Jesus, come again to this earth and find your Bride, the Church, ready and spotless for that greater day to come!
