Typically marked with feasts, dancing, and gladness, wedding ceremonies are joyous occasions in every culture. It’s hard to find an event that is so universally celebrated. So it is no surprise that Revelation describes the second coming of Christ, which ushers in the new heaven, as the Lamb’s wedding ceremony. What joy we all have to look forward to as members of Christ’s bride, His church!
And we rejoice:
Lord, thank You for calling me to be a part of Your church. Just as a bride anticipates her wedding day, I look forward to Your return and the full revealing of Your Kingdom. It is with joy that I look forward to Your final victory, and with gratitude that I accept Your invitation to Your great wedding feast. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
