DAILY WORDS OF HOPE
BY PCG, HOPE CONGREGATION – SAK. EST.
Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear. Revelation 19:7-8 (NIV)
WORDS OF HOPE:
Before a wedding, everything is discussed and planned down to the last detail: the venue, the dress, rings, invitations, meal, cake, wine, music, photographer, seating, speeches, transportation, honeymoon and the list goes on. Colours are chosen; traditions upheld. Everything is important and meaningful. Everything must be perfect. The bride needs to lose ten pounds, have the perfect shoes, tan, makeup, manicure, pedicure, and not a hair out of place. While she fusses and stresses and often submits to despair, the groom mops up the tears. The Bible tells us that the wedding banquet of the Lamb with Jesus Christ as the Groom and the Church as His bride will be a party like no other. No expense will be spared: all the riches in the world belong to God. What a day that will be! We may doubt whether we’ll be ready to face our Saviour. We may feel that we’ll never be good enough, no matter how hard we try. But do not despair, we, the bride, will not have to worry about being perfect. Isaiah 61:10a – I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness. When the time comes, Christians Christ’s ones, those who belong to Him will appear before Him absolutely flawless.
· Thank the Lord for your garments of your salvation.
· Pray that the Lord would help you to be ready for His coming at all times.
· Pray that you would greatly delight in the Lord.
Lord Jesus, it’s not about what we achieve but what we become. You believe in us, our redemption, and our royalty. Help us to believe in you and become what you made us to be. Amen 🙏🏽
