The Greater Marriage

I love weddings! They are times of great joy for bride and groom. All who come are able to join in their joy.

But, I also love weddings because of what a wedding illustrates. The Bible describes the church as the bride of Christ. Jesus is the bridegroom. The church is the bride. The storyline of the Bible anticipates the day when the church will be presented to Jesus as His bride. In that day, there will be great joy and happiness. The Bible says, Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb” (Rev. 19:9).

So, whenever attending a wedding, rejoice with the bride and groom. But, I would also encourage you to direct your hearts and your minds beyond the bride and groom to the greater marriage–the Lord Jesus Christ and His church.
