Waiting For The Bride

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

For he says, In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2

When I got married, there was a malfunction with the preparation of the bridesmaids. Something went wrong and they ended up looking like something out of the bride of Frankenstein. Because of the malfunction, the wedding was held up by two hours! Fortunately there were a lot of performers present, so everyone was kept busy. So while they performed, the bridesmaids and bride frantically did everything they could to prepare themselves to look beautiful or presentable.

In the same way, the Scripture tells us that Messiah is the Bridegroom and He’s looking for a bride who is prepared and ready for the wedding. That’s you. Your wedding’s coming. And the only time you have to prepare for it is now… your days on earth. Use your time wisely. Make the most of every moment. Use it to become more spiritually beautiful, more loving, more pure, more righteous, more filled with the Holy Spirit and grace – for this is the only time you have. And you don’t want to be late for your own wedding.

Today’s Mission – Devote as much time as you can each day making preparations for your upcoming wedding to Messiah, your Bridegroom. Start with finding a way to be more loving to others.

Our crown awaits!

George Whittenby George Whitten

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2

In 490 B.C., the Athenians won a crucial and decisive battle over the forces of King Darius I of Persia, on a plain near the Greek coastal town of Marathon. Upon delivering the important message of their victory, the Greek soldier who came to tell the good news died — he had completed the 26 mile course running and bearing good news, and did it totally unreserved until the moment he died. Today marathons are run all over the world, commemorating that very event 2500 years ago.

Anyone who has run a marathon can tell you how difficult the race is. No matter how good you are, how well trained, how prepared, there are times in the race you just want to quit. But those who persevere till the end receive a prize. Back in King Darius’ day, one would win only a crown made of laurel leaves. Today, athletes compete for trophies and medals. But in God’s race, we win something far more precious — a crown that is incorruptible.

I bet you’re tired today. You are overworked, overstressed, overwhelmed … DONE! Be encouraged! Just when you think you can’t run any further, you can! C’mon! Press through and press on for the great prize! God is with us, strengthening our feeble knees and moving us in the right direction!!

Your family in the Lord with much agape love
