Invite Jesus to Your Wedding

On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”  

“Dear woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied, “My time has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

“Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim. Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.” They did so, and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”

“This, the first of his miraculous signs, Jesus performed in Cana of Galilee. He thus revealed his glory, and his disciples put their faith in him.” John 2: 1-11

Goals for Your Wedding Day

1.  We will make our wedding a worship experience by…making Jesus the very first person we invite.

2.  Resolving to make it a worship service, rather than a production.

3.  Setting our goal to be married, not just to get married.

4.  Praising the Creator, rather than calling attention to us.

5.  Setting a budget to honor God rather than to impress people.

6.  Publicly honoring our parents and grandparents.

7.  Remembering it is Christ, not the pastor who really marries you.

8.  Call attention on your wedding day to our true future hope – the second coming of Christ (the wedding supper of the Lamb.)  “Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory!  For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.” Revelation 19:7

Some Serious Questions to consider:

Will people remember Jesus more than the two of you when the day is over?

Is the presence of Christ truly welcome in all your festivities including at the reception?

Will the people who attend catch a glimpse of heaven?

Remember, marriage is for better for worse for keeps.
