The Bridegroom’s Better House

20 Oct

The Bridegroom’s Better House…

In ancient Israel, a Jewish man had to prepare a house for his intended bride. When the house was ready, the groom would come to the bride’s home and take her away into the new house he had built for her.

But there was a law in Israel, the law of the bridegrooms. According to that law, a bridegroom could never take his bride out of a house that was better than the house he was taking her to.

Well, Jesus is a Hebrew Bridegroom, and we, the Church are a Hebrew bride. He’s come to take us out of our old house and to a new one that He’s prepared. God can only lead you to something better. God will only take you to a better joy, a better love, a better peace, a better life.

Don’t be afraid to really follow the Lord and to go all out for Him. Don’t think it’s ever a step down. It’s only up. Everything He calls you to do will lead you to a better and higher place. Trust Him. Follow Him. That’s His job. And that’s the law.

My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:2-3

Take a step out of your comfort zone and go higher in the Lord today.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
