Did you receive an invitation to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding last Saturday? Neither did I. Like most Canadians, I could only watch it on TV. Oprah may have had difficulty finding her seat in the church, but at least she had one reserved.
There is a greater wedding reception that I look forward to attending, and I’m happy to say that my invitation has already been secured. It is called The Marriage Supper of the Lamb. The apostle John was given a vision of this supper, and he wrote about it in the Book of Revelation.
Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and exult and give Him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His Bride has made herself ready; it was granted her to clothe herself with fine linen, bright and pure” – for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints. And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” (Revelation 19:6-9a)
The Lamb is Jesus, who laid down His life as a sacrifice for our sin. The Bride is the Church, made up of all who trust Him as Lord and Saviour. There will be a great celebration in Heaven when Jesus is united with His Bride. It will be the greatest Royal Wedding of all time, because the Groom will be the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
Today’s Good News is that you can be invited to The Marriage Supper of the Lamb. You can secure that invitation by accepting Jesus’ invitation for salvation and eternal life.
Now, go share the Good News…
