In Revelation 19:6-10, there is a dinner party you won’t want to miss.
If you belong to Jesus, you will be there. Nothing will stand in your way like it does now. There will be no traffic jams. You won’t feel too guilty to come. It won’t matter how you’re dressed because the host will provide an outfit.
Let’s take a look at each in turn.
The great event is the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Now if you’re a guy, consider this. You might feel a bit weird thinking how this will work out. You might think being loved by God is a bit too intimate. Look at it like this: God will look you in the eye and tell you with all sincerity, “Son, I’m proud of you.”
If you call yourself a Christian, He is your Father. The difference between Him and your earthly father is that He really means it. And if you had a father who really was proud of you, you already know what this feels like. To have the God of the universe say that to you is priceless.
Now if you’re a woman reading this, the same words could fill a void left by your father.
What do I mean by “traffic jams”? Life is full of things that compete with our devotion to God. There’s guilt, which comes because we’ve sinned and we know it. Guilt also comes because in some way we’ve failed to live up to not only God’s standards, but also we’ve failed to live up to our own. Sin is life wrecker, especially when we don’t address it. But even if we do, we’re never going to get to the bottom of the problem without Jesus.
Here’s how to deal with guilt. Jesus took care of your sins on the cross. They don’t need to define you now. But there is still some of that old man hanging on while we live. Jesus gives us power to deal with that.
At the marriage supper, sin won’t be a factor anymore. There won’t be any more guilt because the promise of redemption will finally be totally fulfilled. You see, at the cross, the record of your wrongdoing was not only wiped away, God stopped keeping records.
That should set you free to worship Him now.
And going Home will be incredible for eternity.
