Revelation 19:9 (NIV 2011)
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.”
Many may think that the movie, “the Wedding Crashers” is not one you would find on the favorite picks list. However, there is one wedding you want to see and definitely must attend: the wedding of the Lamb, the final feast for all those who are in the Lord Jesus Christ. In Luke 5, Levi invites Jesus and all his friends for a great banquet. Those who attend and are at the banquet table are not dignitaries but are the outcasts and those known as “sinners.” But in the realm of God’s kingdom, however, they are welcome guests at the table of our Lord. The apocalyptic imagery of the wedding of the Lamb is meant to encourage us to be disciples of Jesus. The invitation is extended to us, ’cause there ain’t gonna be no crashing on that wedding!
This invitation to the wedding supper of the Lamb is for all of us. It is amazing and humbling that we would receive such an incredible invitation. We are called to be part of the bride of Christ, united with Him when He returns. Let’s worship the Lord, thanking Him for calling us by name. May we respond each day to the call, trusting in faith that we are welcomed to His banqueting table and that He will return in all His glory.
