Matthew 9:14-15 Then the disciples of John came to him, saying, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?” And Jesus said to them, “Can the wedding guests mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast.
What an incredible thing we learn about Jesus in this passage! Jesus is our bridegroom and we are His bride, all of us who have put our faith and trust in Him. He loves us with a deep and everlasting love. We are “one with Christ.” He pays all of our debts to God. He supplies all of our daily needs. He sympathizes with all our troubles. He bears all our sins, and does not reject us in our weaknesses. Those that persecute us are persecuting Him. We will one day share in His glory, and where He is, that’s where we will be. Incredible privileges of the Bride of Jesus: us! We will be the Lamb’s wife. (Rev. 19:7.) What a blessing for those who believe!
