For many of our people the highlight of our congregational life will be the wedding of Yvonne O’Mailley to Scott Hunter on Friday 5th May at 3pm. We wish them well in their new-found joy and trust that their day will go well and all the days that follow.
This event causes us to think of another great wedding to which we are all invited, namely the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, the occasion when Jesus is married to His Bride – the Church. In Revelation 19:7 we are told: “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready.” So, it is a happy day with gladness and rejoicing: an event for us all to look forward to. We are also told to get ready.
What great, time consuming and attention to detail preparation is going into Yvonne and Scott’s big day. How much more our marriage to Jesus.
Make yourself ready. Be looking your best.
In one of Jesus’ parables He tells us that to get to the wedding we need to have the wedding garment on. This refers to the Robe of Righteousness which we get when we accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour and get born again. So, make sure you are ready – garment on – all spruced up.
If you’re not sure, see me!
