If you are British, part of the commonwealth, or simply fascinated by all things royal you are likely to get up tomorrow and watch a certain event live. Tomorrow’s wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is capturing the attention of people around the world. This wedding, much like that of Prince William and Kate, is as close to a modern fairytale as you can get. In both romances a young woman from a “common” background marries a prince. Miss Markle’s family background and her not being British, but from the United States (former Colonies) makes this a “storied” wedding.
There is something appealing about those that seem and that society often deems unworthy or less than worthy getting the prince. There is something more than “noblesse oblige” to William and Harry choosing to marry whom they choose. What we appear to see is a stat,net of love and respect.
I know that you are way ahead of me, but allow me to make the obvious connection to our marriage to Christ. Allow me to remind you that as a Christian as a part of the Church, you are the bride of Christ:
When the day comes for the Lord to return and take his bride home, what a GLORIOUS ROYAL WEDDING that will be!
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb
Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,
For the Lord our God
the Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and exult
and give him the glory,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
and his Bride has made herself ready;
it was granted her to clothe herself
with fine linen, bright and pure”—
for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.
And the angel said[a] to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.” Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God.” For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. (Revelation 19:6-10)
That is one Royal Wedding I look forward too. I, the undeserving, entering into the family and the eternal house of God!
