The marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife [the body of Christ] hath made herself ready… -Revelation 19:7-9
Did you know the story of the Bible begins and ends with a marriage? Marriage matters to God.
Our marriages are all about a wedding and an eternal marriage yet to be that will overshadow the most glamorous wedding you’ve ever seen. But there are some similarities of earthly weddings and the heavenly wedding ceremony to come:
Our husband-wife relationship continues to show the unseen relationship between God and His Son, Jesus, and also show the relationship of Jesus to His bride, all believers.
Your home’s stability and health depend on this God-created design working as He intended. Of course, we will make a multitude of mistakes. God doesn’t expect perfection. He has given us His Spirit to guide us, strengthen us, and help us do what we are totally unable to do on our own.
Knowing my marriage is a picture of an eternal one makes how I celebrate my anniversaries very important. Yours too. Because of this eternal love story and God’s relentless pursuit of our hearts, our marriages point to Him and the imminent marriage of the Lamb!
So make celebrating your anniversary an important occasion this year and for a lifetime to come. Each anniversary is worth the time, energy, and effort to say: our marriage will last as our promises said, “Till death do us part.” Promises kept today point us to His promises that will never change.
