Getting a Seat at the Wedding

Wedding is pretty much all we're talking about these days at Casa Wallace. We're down to the week before the big day for our daughter Emily and her fiance, Chris. We've been planning this for a year and the end is in sight.  If you've ever been through a full blown wedding (not a JP or eloping thing), you know that the last weeks are full of details, stress, a little frustration, and more details. The seating chart has been the big deal this week.  It's finally done and people who have responded that they'll attend, have a seat. They have an assigned table that will have a place card with their name. 

It's going to be a great time. We'll have family and friends around us who are there with one purpose--celebrating the marriage of Emily and Chris. They've been waiting a long time for this day, endured a long separation, and mostly communicated by Skype. There will be toasts, gifts, music, dancing, and my heart will be glad to see them together.  



While this is one of the best celebrations we experience, there is a greater one to come. It's another marriage feast, but it's going to be like nothing we've ever experienced here on earth.

Let us be glad and rejoice, and let us give honor to him. For the time has come for the wedding feast of the Lamb, and his bride has prepared herself. She has been given the finest of pure white linen to wear." For the fine linen represents the good deeds of God's holy people. Revelation 19:7-8 NLT

And the angel said to me, "Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb." And he added, "These are true words that come from God." Revelation 19:9 NLT

This event won't be stressful for the bride - the Church. The Bridegroom has taken care of every detail, down to what we'll wear. He'll make His entrance on a white horse.  We'll be together, celebrating, and worshiping our Savior, our Friend, our Bridegroom. It's a celebration that will continue into eternity. 

Emily and Chris will soon learn that their wedding day will be over before they know it. That year of planning will be a memory in no time. We'll all be amazed at how the time flew by and the party was over. It's the way with all human events.  

The big event to come for those who have placed their trust in Christ won't be over in a matter of hours. Eternity stretches out ahead of us as the Bridegroom who bought us with His own blood will show us the wonders of Heaven. There won't be any of the stress or worries of this life either.

He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever."  Rev. 21:4 NLT

But, you need to respond to the invitation to get a seat at the table. You've already been invited. Your name needs to be in the Book of Life. Don't miss that wedding by not sending an RSVP.  

I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man comes to Father except through Me. --Jesus (John 14:6)
