"The Royal Wedding"

Friday morning I awoke to an actual fairy tale story. It was the day of the marriage of Prince William and a commoner, Catherine Middleton.

Watching TV, the first scenes I saw were of the Queen of England, stylish with her yellow hat, and Prince Philip arriving at Westminster Abbey. The next videos included a glimpse of Catherine Middleton getting into her limousine with her father. Everywhere people lined the streets to catch a glimpse of royalty on a special day for the British people.

The evening before I heard of schemes people had to try to get an invitation to the wedding of William and Catherine or to get an invitation to the Queen's luncheon following the service or an invitation to the private dinner at Buckingham Palace for close friends and family. Although these were big celebrations, not everyone was invited.

While the world's thoughts centered on a royal wedding and the media chattered about invitations sent for this society event, only a few were thinking about the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. Only a few are anxiously awaiting this glorious feast. In this case, everyone is invited. (The Bible says, "whosoever" will.) But only a few are replying with their acceptance.

A Facebook comment from my friend, Katie, read, "Today a 'commoner' became part of a royal family. However, we all have the ability to become royalty by joining the royal family of Christ Jesus. Fulfill your dreams of becoming Princes and Princesses today!"

Another comment from Phil read, "I am waiting for a REAL Royal wedding...there will be millions there! It will be out of this world! When the King Of Kings marries His bride!! Come quickly Lord Jesus!"

If you missed Prince William and Catherine's wedding, don't feel bad. However, if you haven't accepted Jesus' invitation to His royal wedding banquet, do it today. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. Soon the Marriage Supper of the Lamb will take place, and life with Him will go on forever. You are invited. Accept the invitation. Say "yes."
