Prepare yourself!

Monday, March 26, 2007 (2:14 pm)

Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

The faithful man of God that led my wife to the Lord is here from America with us this week and it's such a blessing to have him here. He also secretly married us in Israel five years ago — before our major wedding ceremony in the States.

As I was thinking about this verse the other day it reminded me of that special evening in Jerusalem and how my wife elaborately prepared for our wedding. It was just a small gathering at her father's house but it was so sweet. Her dad prepared beautiful and delicious Israeli delicacies. We built a chuppa (Jewish wedding canopy) from her great grandfather's tallit (Jewish prayer shawl). A Paul Wilbur CD played softly in the back round and about a hundred candles lit the living room. My soon to be wife had spent hours bathing and doing her hair and getting beautiful for the occasion and finally out she came. It all was so romantic, well planned and wonderfully prepared.

We are our Lord's bride! And in the same way, we have a responsibility to prepare for His return! We have some work to do, don't we?

Let's examine our hearts today and lay it all out before Him. Let's give Him the first fruits of our day in worship and study and prayer and allow Him to refine and cleanse us — that we may be found a bride without wrinkle or spot – that we would be found a holy and righteous and beautiful bride for Him and our celebration together would be glorious!
