In 1983, Ed Woodyard decided where he wanted to spend New Year’s Eve 1999. After some discussion with a reservation agent, he booked a room at a hotel which hadn’t been built yet—the Marriott Marquis that would overlook Times Square in New York City. Now that’s triple faith—that the day will arrive, that the hotel will be built, and that he will still be around.
It shouldn’t seem strange, then, that Christians are preparing to attend a grand event God has planned for all who belong to Him through faith in Christ. Revelation describes it as the wedding celebration of Jesus and His bride, the church (Rev. 19:7-9).
Perhaps you have thoughtfully considered receiving Christ as your Savior from sin and placing your life in His hands, but for some reason you’ve never made that commitment. Jesus said, “He who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life” (Jn. 5:24).
The celebration has been planned and the day will come. Will you be there? Will you accept God’s invitation? Receive Jesus Christ today so that your name will be included on the guest list.
Salvation is a gift of God,
Not something earned or won;
He freely gives eternal life
To all who trust His Son. —Sper
Accept God's invitation if you want to join God's celebration.
