What a Difference a Day Made!

A Most Unusual Wedding!

I love weddings because they are so beautiful and each one is different. I have been to many weddings and also have participated in a few ceremonies. However, yesterday was the first time I had ever attended such an unusual wedding ceremony.

The officiating minister used scriptures to reveal how a marriage is symbolic of how Christ loves the church [we are His bride]. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,  that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the Word,  that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 

So, husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself.  For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.  For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. For this reason, a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.

This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.  Nevertheless, let each one of you in particular love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her (Ephesians 5:25-33).

The entire ceremony captured my attention because the couple was marrying each other for the second time. This was unique and a testimony as to Christians allowing the Spirit of God to reunite them after separating and being divorced from one another. Their testimony will be powerful as they share with others how God honors marriages and they did what was right by God and each other.

I pray that all married Christians will honor their vows that they made to God and to each other. For those who did not allow God to put their marriages together, ask the Lord to help you to honor Him and each other.
