When I speak to friends who have the habit of living an indisciplined life, I say them, imagine - what if the person whom you are going to marry is here and is watching you. How will he/she be able to love you prefectly. According to me, the same logic is applicable for me, and my groom is watching me all the time. I have to make sure that I am acceptable to Him and He is happy to see what I am doing, How I present my self to the people (as His own), How do I treat His people, am I happy to be His own?
My groom does not stop with just looking, when I get into any situations where I dont know how to handle, He is there to provide me His guidance, He is there the protect me from dangers, He hold me safe as I walk, He provides me all my needs, He fills me with His Joy and His Love and His Peace.
Song of Songs 2:4Let him lead me to the banquet hall, and let his banner over me be love.
Prepared and Waiting for the Groom
As we wait for the Groom, hold on to the Word of God filled (anointed) with the Holy Spirit. Never be foolish or reluctant about the Holy Spirit or the Word of God.
Matthew 25:4-6 The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. At midnight the cry rang out: 'Here's the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!'
1 John 2:20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth.
Ready with the Wedding Garment
Our body is the temple of God, keep this Holy and free of sins and always ready as a living sacrifice to God our Lord.
Matthew 22:12-13 He asked, 'How did you get in here without wedding clothes, friend?' The man was speechless. Then the king told the attendants, 'Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
Watchfully Listening to His Instructions
Listen to Him and the Holy Spirit and act accordingly, and walk in way that is acceptable to Him. Never Hurt anyone or lead a sinful life.
Luke 12:35-38 Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning,like servants waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him.It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes.Truly I tell you, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them.It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the middle of the night or toward daybreak.
Carrying our His orders Faithfully
Faithfully obey what He has told us, serve His Children and people, spread the Gospel and Live the calling (purpose) for which He has called us.
Matthew 24:45 Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time?
Being part of His Banquet
Though I am not sure if I am all ready for the Banquet, but I am excited.
Revelation 19:7 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.
Revelation 19:9 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.
