John 14:1-3 – “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”
How lowly, how despicable, how selfish the man who woos the woman, who receives her devotion, who has received her very heart and so many of her hopes, and then, after the “I do’s” are said, walks away and leaves her at the altar? She stands at the altar and waits. What is he doing? Where has he gone? When will he be coming back? Will he be coming back? Slowly her heart breaks and she begins to drown in shame and sorrow. The hushed voices of the wedding guests are a suffocating gas to her. The preacher offers a consoling arm. Her parents rush to her side. At that moment her whole future lays in ruins on the floor. How despicable that groom who would do that!
Jesus is our Groom and we are His Bride. He would never act in such a way. He has made a promise and He has never lied and neither will He ever lie. He has promised to love us for eternity and He does and He will. He has promised to never leave or forsake us and He will keep that promise. He has promised to prepare a position for us in the presence of the Father that will remain forever and He already has. Family there is nothing and no one on this earth that is incapable of disappointing or hurting us in some way, on purpose or by accident. Jesus, the Great Groom, will never, no not ever, hurt us or leave us. He loves us with an everlasting love. So when the world hurts us, or leaves us, or no longer considers us of any value, remember that there is One who would never hurt us and will never leave or forsake us. There is One who always loves, values and cherishes us. There is One who loves every moment of our company. He loves us sharing our thoughts with Him and He knows the answers to encourage our hearts and heal our wounds. The Answer is yesterday, today and forever the same. The Answer if Jesus! Let us love Him and hold fast to Him because He is the precious gift from God to us. He is the greatest treasure anyone can have. Be encouraged. Don’t let your hearts be cast down. Remember who loves us. It is Jesus, who is able to save and keep us all. Praise God! Thank you Jesus! Praise God!
