You are invited to come dine with me,
from now through all eternity.
Believe in the Father, Son and Holy Ghost;
and dine with Jesus as your Host.
To live in Heaven eternally
all you must do is
Will you accept The Invitation of our Bridegroom, Jesus Christ?
What an honor to know and pray to Jesus as our Bridegroom!
The words that Ann Spangler shares in today's devotional on "Praying in the Names of Jesus" about God's love for us as a passionate bridegroom, illustrating the great lengths that He went through to unite us to Himself. I just have to share Ann's words for you to reflect on:
"Maybe that's how God felt about his relationship with his people, who had repeatedly responded to him like an unfaithful wife intent on pursuing affairs with other men. But rather than suing for divorce, God made the most gracious gesture imaginable. He came himself, in the person of Jesus Christ, to call his people back. Just like a Jewish groom, Jesus left his Father's house to come and pay the bride price for his beloved. But instead of paying in so many coins, Jesus secured the marriage covenant with his own blood."
THANK YOU LORD JESUS!
Promises in Scripture
As a young man marries a maiden,
so will your sons marry you;
as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride,
so will your God rejoice over you.
I will betroth you to me forever;
I will betroth you in righteousness
in love and compassion.
I will betroth you in faithfulness,
and you will acknowledge the Lord.
Hosea 2:19 - 20
Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:1 - 3
