My mother loves to entertain. She will plan an event for weeks. Nothing is too good for her friends. She uses her best table cloths, china and crystal. She will polish the silver and take out the serving trays and fine utensils. She will set an elegant table with all the extra forks, spoons, glasses, and plates, used to enjoy a decadent seven-course meal. In the middle of the table she places an elaborate centerpiece with candles or candle sticks. The finished table is a welcoming work of art.
All that does not compare to the feast we will enjoy one day.
6 Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
7 Let us rejoice and be glad
and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
and his bride has made herself ready.
8 Fine linen, bright and clean,
was given her to wear.”
(Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.)
9 Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.”
I really enjoy sharing a fine meal with family and good friends. I’m trying to imagine this incredible meal we will share with Christ one day. It will be more delicious than anything we have ever tasted. The company will be our very best friend, Jesus Himself.
Walk in His Light,
