A Toast!



When I think about the kickoff party for the eternal state being the marriage of Christ to His Bride, The Church, it makes me wonder about what Revelation 19:9 calls “The marriage supper of the Lamb”. I was married recently and part of my reception involved a dear friend of mine presenting a very common thing: “The Toast”. He did an awesome job but will there be a toast for the Bridegroom at the marriage supper?....I sure hope so.

Matthew 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

A toast to The One called Faithful and True.
Who died for me, as He died for you.
In Him, all things have been made New.
Forever He shall be praised!

The Word made flesh, born from a womb,
Who tasted of death, crucified and entombed.
His glory bursts forth like the sun’s strength at noon.
Forever He shall be praised!

Fullness of the Father, contained in The Son.
The Shepherd of 99, Who seeks after the one.
Author and Finisher of the race that we’ve run!
Forever He shall be praised!

Left glory unspeakable to humble Himself.
Lessened His power, as if placed on the shelf.
Took on humanity, to give sinners His wealth.
Forever He shall be praised!

All good gifts, He’s the one who delivers.
Our lowly estate, in His mercy considered.
Life everlasting, He alone is the giver!
Forever He shall be praised!

Now in His glory, established as King!
Under His feet, God has placed everything!
Oh Glorious Day! We have been redeemed!
Forever He shall be praised!

Words can’t express! Our hearts are amazed!
Planned and fulfilled by The Ancient of Days!
Without further ado and with glasses all raised!
FOREVER    HE    SHALL    BE    PRAISED!!!

Consider in your heart what Christ means to you. What would your toast look like? And as you think of our toast, think about your life in Christ and pray that it would reflect the heart of “The Toast” you’d give at His marriage supper. Everyday that you wake up still here, is another day to practice your toast.


Here’s The Word;

1 Chronicles 16:10 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.


In Him,
Cros
