Today, I wanted to do something different on my blog today. I have posted here today a funny clip of a Groom who forgot the rings on his wedding day. The clip is soo funny as you see the great lengths he would go just to make sure that he gets the rings just in time to marry his bride. In reflection of this, I was thinking about how Jesus went to great depths to sacrifice Himself for His Church who is the Bride of Christ by going through with the crucifixion, dying and then resurrecting from the dead for all of us in fulfillment of the scriptures. We as the church need to be thankful and grateful that we have such a groom in our lives who would do so much to devote His love towards us and go at such great lengths just to have a relationship with us.
Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.
[ The Outworking of Love ] By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
Jesus loves us so much that going through with the crucifixion was how much He thought we were worth, and that is what I want you to think about as you watch this funny clip. The groom went to great lengths just to marry his bride…and Jesus did the same for us except that His sacrifice was much greater in that He sacrificed His own life so that we would live a life more abundantly. May we not take our Lord’s love for His church for granted and give God the greatest praise everyday as we live in the light of His Word and His Love.
Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
I pray that this clip blesses you today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀
