The Bridegroom. R.S.V.P.
Headline: Jesus is getting married!
The courtship has been bumpy and long. There have been dangers of a broken engagement along the way. But any day now, the wedding will be a reality!
The wedding has been announced and the invitations have been sent. Have you responded to your invitation? It is not too late…yet…
This will be a marriage that will never drift into the mundane. You will never be bored. You will never be separated by divorce or death.
Take some time to read His Love Letter to you — the Bible — the Word of God. Get to know the Bridegroom. Start with making a list of His Greatness…His attributes. Note how He relates to His created ones. Underline. Highlight. Pay close attention. Ask Him for understanding. Begin to make a list of what is most meaningful to you as you read. I suggest that you start toward the back of the book…in the New Testament.
Try this for starters: Make the next four Sundays special. Each Sunday read one of the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke & John) so you can get to know the Bridegroom. That’s called the 4 Gospels. And it’s where you will read of His invitation to you to join Him forever. The more your read, the more you will understand the depth of His love for you!
Say yes to His invitation to you! And begin the journey toward maturity as His someday soon Bride. Little by little, growing, maturing, and understanding what it means to be a “follower” devoted to the Bridegroom. As He already is devoted to you. He longs to have you say yes! He’s done His part…now it’s your turn to respond. R.S.V.P. But that is only the beginning. The rest of your life and on into eternity will be spent walking together with Him…side-by-side. Never looking back. There is no one you can trust more than the Heavenly Bridegroom. Jesus, the Christ. The Lord.
Let me know if I can help you toward that journey of becoming all you were created to be. Don’t settle for less than that…
Beautiful and encouraging article, Pam. It has been so lovely to think of each woman in coach2coach and pray her “bride” requests before Bridegroom Jesus.

Lovely, Sharen. What a lovely way for you to pray for each woman in the Coach-2-Coach tele-study…(praying each woman’s “bride” requests before Bridegroom Jesus)…Sharing life. Encouraging each other. Women Connecting with Women! Great blessings each week! Woo Hoo!
