‘Tis the season for weddings! I went to my 2nd wedding this summer (and it’s only June!) for a dear friend yesterday and there are many more to come.
Weddings are a fun celebration of two people joining together. I love it when a wedding is a perfect representation of the couple getting married. The decorations, the ceremony, reception are exactly the personality of the bride and groom. Wedding days are happy days!
The moment I love during the wedding ceremony is when the bride walks in and looks as though she is glowing and radiant, and then I turn to look at the groom. His face is of pure joy and excitement and love for his gorgeous bride who is before him.
Picture yourself as the bride (yes, it’s harder for men to picture this). And standing before you is Jesus. His face is of pure joy, excitement, and love. The way a groom looks at his bride as she comes down the aisle is how Jesus looks at you. However, Jesus doesn’t care how you look, he loves you just as you are. He loves us with an unconditional love that we may never completely understand. But marriages here on earth and the representation of a bride and groom, help us to understand a little better.
“As a young man marries a maiden, so will your sons marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.” Isaiah 62:5
I am excitedly looking forward to the day I marry the man God has chosen for me on earth, but I am especially looking forward to the day I get to see Jesus face to face.
