The Royal Wedding

Psalm 45

My heart overflows with a pleasing theme;
    I address my verses to the king;
    my tongue is like the pen of a ready scribe.

 You are the most handsome of the sons of men;
    grace is poured upon your lips;
    therefore God has blessed you forever.
 Gird your sword on your thigh, O mighty one,
    in your splendor and majesty!

 In your majesty ride out victoriously
    for the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
    let your right hand teach you awesome deeds!
 Your arrows are sharp
    in the heart of the king's enemies;
    the peoples fall under you.

 Your throne, O God, is forever and ever.
    The scepter of your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness;
     you have loved righteousness and hated wickedness.
Therefore God, your God, has anointed you
    with the oil of gladness beyond your companions;
     your robes are all fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia.
From ivory palaces stringed instruments make you glad;
     daughters of kings are among your ladies of honor;
    at your right hand stands the queen in gold of Ophir.

10  Hear, O daughter, and consider, and incline your ear:
    forget your people and your father's house,
11      and the king will desire your beauty.
Since he is your lord, bow to him.
12      The people  of Tyre will seek your favor with gifts,
    the richest of the people. 

13  All glorious is the princess in her chamber, with robes interwoven with gold.
14      In many-colored robes she is led to the king,
    with her virgin companions following behind her.
15  With joy and gladness they are led along
    as they enter the palace of the king.

16  In place of your fathers shall be your sons;
    you will make them princes in all the earth.
17  I will cause your name to be remembered in all generations;
    therefore nations will praise you forever and ever.

Today’s Truth

Jesus will return to gather His bride. All we must do to prepare is to accept Him. Then we need to tell others about Him.

Discussion Questions
  1. Reread verses 1-9 and remind yourself of Jesus' character. List words that describe the King.
  2. What things distract you from bowing your head (and heart) to Jesus?
  3. If you already placed your faith in Jesus, my challenge for you today is to reflect on how your guest list is coming together. Who are the people you want to share Jesus with so they, too, can be a part of the ultimate wedding?
