It seems to me that many of us who claim to be followers of Christ have a more limited understanding of God's love for us that the one that is painted in Scripture. As I was reading in Isaiah today, I came across a vers that said, "And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so your God will rejoice over you" (Isaiah 62:5b).
As a minister I have been fortunate to officiate several weddings in my lifetime. One of the things that always sticks with me is the look on the groom's face when he sees his bride coming down the aisle. There are times that I see these young men express a joy that is impossible to descibe.
How much more rejoicing is shown by the lover of our souls, when He sees us coming to meet Him? May the Father grant you at least a sense of just how much He loves you today.
