so He waits.. March 22, 2010

Filed under: Family — haven4nine @ 12:12 pm

We took a break from our normal Sunday routine yesterday to attend a wedding of a sweet young man we have known for years.  There was an expectation in the air as the wedding date arrived and even more excitement as everyone waited for the Bride to enter the room yesterday.  She did not disappoint, she was absolutely beautiful!  But then I don’t think I have ever seen an ugly bride.  I know she spent the whole day getting ready, making sure her hair, makeup and dress were perfect.  And as she glided down the aisle all you can see is perfection on her.  Nothing out of place. Not a spot or wrinkle.

Makes me wonder about us as Christians, we are called the Bride of Christ.  Do you think when that day comes .. when He comes for His Bride that we will be ready?  Have we spent enough time getting ready?   Have we spent time thinking about Him, getting to know Him, spending time with Him?  He loves us and wants to be with us.  We need to get ready, we need to be ready.

that He might present her to Himself, a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing but that she should be holy and without blemish. Eph.5:27NKJV

Congratulations to Jeremy and Kelly Stanton.. may the LORD bless you and keep you!
