Word for the Week...May 1-8 2011

"...just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her. That He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word. That He might present her to himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish." Ephesians.5:25-27. [nkjv]

We rejoice and give thanks to The Lord for the recent marriage of Prince William and Ms.Catherine Middleton at Westminster Abbey, London, England, on the 29th April 2011.May they know peace and happiness, prosperity and love, now and always....

As we search the Word of God we see that there will be another 'Royal Wedding'...to take place in the future...that of The King of Kings, our Lord JESUS CHRIST and His Church...which will be the consummation of the hope of countless Christians throughout  the past 2000 yrs.[aprox.]

What lessons can we learn from this passage of scripture?...Firstly, that marriage is a Divine Institution, Ordained by God, in order to bring completion and fulfillment to both parties involved. Secondly, that appropriate and thorough preparations must be made, by all, to ensure that God Is duly honoured in both the ceremony and practice of marriage. Thirdly, that the Interests of the other party are primary and permanently, in the plans and purposes of the marriage partner.

With the Christian virtues of Chastity, Reverence, Selflessness and Commitment abounding, as Supremely Exemplified By our Lord JESUS CHRIST, marriage will bring Glory and Honour to God... and preserve stability and security for mankind.

May The Lord Bless you.
