A time of celebration

Dove at weddingWhatever your thoughts are on the monarchy, it will be hard to avoid the royal wedding this weekend if you are in the UK.

Not only have some members of the public been invited to attend the event in person, it will also be watched by many on live television and internet streams, not just in the UK, but across the whole globe. The last royal wedding in the UK was watched by almost 3 billion people†. That is almost 3 billion witnesses to the marriage ceremony!

This weekend is also a time of celebration for Christians across the globe. Just as many will come together to witness the union of Harry and Meghan, so too this weekend Christians come together to testify and witness to Jesus Christ. It is a time when they remember how Jesus Christ has given us his Spirit. A Spirit of joy and freedom. A Spirit of love and hope.

As we watch two people make their solemn promises of commitment to each other, let us remember the promise God made to us.

‘Everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’‡
