As residents of this world we are sorrounded by parties like weddings, birthdays, graduations etc. Parties are usually happy celebrations specially if you are invited. But once in a while we will notice that we miss some parties, and somehow you and I feel slighted but later on our defense mechanisms will find some excuses why we are not invited.
By now you might be thinking , what does this got to do with Christian blogs ? Much in many ways , Jesus loves parties too, in fact his first miracle happened in a wedding, in Cana the Bible says. Still you might be saying, I still do not get it. Well according to the Bible, Jesus is getting married too. What ? you might say. Yes they call it the marriage supper of the Lamb( the Lamb being Jesus). But to whom ? to the church which is also called the Bride. Not only we are invited but we are the bride. Bride ? you might say but I am a man. Well the believers are also called the bride, true, the Bible say it.
You might say , what is the catch ? There must be some explanation on how you and I can be the bride of Jesus Christ. Well we are sinners and as much as we try we cannot live a perfect life. So Jesus Christ comes to the rescue He came to save us from our sins. We need to repent of our sins and confess Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.
What if we do not do that? Then basically we cancel our invitation. We will not be included in the wedding of Jesus. Well you might say , I want to be in the wedding . Then a question could be , do you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?
Only you have the answer for that. I tell you what others have signed up for the wedding of Jesus. Another question when is the wedding ? It will be a surprise , so do not wait any longer.
The Bible says the bride is waiting for the groom who is Jesus Christ.Are you in or out ? I will see you next time unless Jesus comes first.
