Preach the Word

2 Timothy Chapter 4 Verse 2 – Preach the word; be ready in and out of season.      

Romans Chapter 10 Verse 4How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary

Persevere

Romans Chapter 5 Verses 3-5    We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.   And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.  And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.    (NLT)

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary

The Bridegroom

Revelation Chapter 22 Verse 17 – The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.”   (NASB)

In our modern culture traditional weddings usually focus on the bride.  The groom, his best man, and all the guests wait and watch in anticipation as the bride arrives and begins her walk up the aisle in her beautiful white dress.

But . . .in ancient Jewish custom. . . the bride and her family would wait in anticipation for the groom to come (usually some time after their engagement-after he added a room for them onto his father’s house), and take her to live with him in his father’s house.   Ahhh sound familiar – in John 14:2 Jesus tells His disciples, “In My Father’s house are many rooms, if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.   If I go and prepare a place for you I will come again and receive you to Myself that where I am, there you may be also.” 

The bride also did not know exactly when the groom was going to come.   Ahhh sound familiar –  in Matthew 24:42 Jesus tells His disciples, “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.”

We are the Bride of Christ and we are anticipating His return.   All our eyes will be focused on Him; Jesus our Bridegroom!    Today may we all focus our attention, our eyes, our hearts on our Bridegroom, Jesus our soon Coming King!

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary
