On June 29, our oldest son will be getting married.
That’s only a week away!
We are at the point where lots of things not directly related to the wedding are being postponed until after the big day. We are busy preparing for an after rehearsal party here at our home, the arrival of lots of family the night before and day of the wedding, and all the other little things that have to happen before June 29.
We put time and thought (and money!) into our wedding preparations here on earth. It’s a big deal, as well it should be! But I’ve been thinking about the church (that’s you and me as believers in Christ) and her role as the Bride of Christ.
My son and his bride-to-be chose June 29 as their wedding day, which is fast approaching! We do not know the hour and day our Bridegroom will return for His church, but we know that day will come. And what a joyous occasion that will be!
My prayer is that our response to the beauty of the Gospel of Christ be a readiness to wait in rapt anticipation, putting aside things that lack eternal significance to focus on our future marriage celebration to our beloved Bridegroom.
Let the Bride of Christ remain faithful and true, boldly declaring with a holy expectation:
“Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!” (Rev. 22:20)
Probably won’t be posting again until July. After all, we’ve got a wedding to prepare for!
By His Grace and for the Gospel,
Terrie van Baarsel
