So why then, you may be asking, am I spending time on a Saturday afternoon writing about it?
Because more than any other wedding I have been apart of, this wedding stands out as an example of the grace and love of Christ. Both the bride and groom had been married before and now, through the providence of God working through various circumstances, they had been brought together at our church. They are growing in Christ and now have a chance to make a new life together.
What better picture of the gospel is there? The gospel affords us the opportunity to forget about our live before Christ and look forward to a new life in Him. He washes away everything in our past including our very heart and gives us a clean, new beginning through the blood He shed for us on the cross.
As I watched my two friends say their vows and begin their new life, I couldn't help but think that it was the grace and blood of Christ that makes new beginnings like that possible.
