This is will be short tonight as our youngest daughter is getting married in five months, and she asked me to start working on a wedding invitation list tonight.
The word wedding reminded me of two times it is used in the Bible. In Matthew 22 Jesus tells the parable of the king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. Those invited didn’t come, so he sent his servants out to invite others. I am so thankful that we have been invited to the wedding banquet for God’s Son where we will be not just guests, but the bride of Christ.
This wedding banquet is found in Revelation 19:7 “Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.” Then in verse 9 John writes the words the angel gave him: “Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” May we all accept His invitation.
Very cool point, mom! I think Jack talked about the wedding feast recently in his sermon. It’s neat to think about how God has invited all of us to accept his invitation, but not everyone will accept, just as the ones who didn’t in the story.
Only 5 months to go, we’d better get busy!
