3-Week Series: Double Blessing

Sermon Illustrations


When I was a janitor at O.B.C. there were two or three times I had the opportunity to clean the floors in the girls dorms. One thing that astounded me as I went from room to room was the large pin-up pictures and posters of brides on the walls. Some of these girls had pictures taken from BRIDE magazine all over their walls. I might add that some of these girls didn’t even have boy friends yet.

It didn’t seem to matter whether marriage was imminent or not, the idea of being a bride and wearing a beautiful white gown with a veil was the biggest dream on some of these girl’s minds.

The Bride of Christ will wear a gown of pure white on that wedding day, too. Revelation 19:7-8 says:

"Let us be glad and rejoice and give honor to him; for the marriage of the Lamb is come and his wife has made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white, for the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints."
