The wedding of all weddings

Christmas is coming?

True, but there’s a more exciting event happening this weekend. The wedding everyone has been talking about.

Brooke & Nick tie the knot.

What?

You haven’t been following this celebrity couple’s wedding plans? You’re missing out.

But the hoopla about to happen this weekend isn’t just about two crazy kids getting hitched. It’s way bigger.

Brooke and Nick are modeling the love and commitment that God has for his bride, the universal church of believers.

God, as the groom, chose us, proposed a new life together, and we have accepted. We now anxiously await the big day, the Great Day, our wedding day, when we will be finally and forever united with our groom.

Holy (Wedding Day) gives me goosebumps as I listen to it and think about that wedding day. It’s gonna be easy enough for me to cry at Brooke & Nick’s wedding tomorrow (maybe even during rehearsal tonight, who knows), but that day? Whoa.

.

This is the story of the son of God, hanging on a cross for me.
And it ends with a bride and groom and a wedding by a glassy sea.
This is the story of a bride in white singing on her wedding day.
All together, all that was and is, to stand before her God and say

HOLY, HOLY
HOLY, HOLY
HOLY, HOLY IS THE LORD ALMIGHTY

Join me in congratulating Brooke and Nick and thanking them for the reminder of the wedding by the glassy sea that’s still to come!

    • I need to work on my online sarcasm better. They’re two good friends of mine, so you wouldn’t know them. 🙂 Thanks for reading.

  3. I have not heard this song before, thanks for sharing it. Reminds me of Beloved by 10th Ave. North. Beautiful!

  4. This song and post are such an inspiration….I had never heard it before….My 15th wedding anniversary is Friday and I have been trying to put together a post in honor of that for tomorrow. God has used this to inspire me. Blessings to you!
