God’s Knot

Ecclesiastes 9:12

12Though one may be overpowered,   two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.  

The Cord of Three Strands Ceremony (often called “God’s Knot” or the Unity Braid Ceremony) symbolizes the joining of one man, one woman, and God into a marriage relationship. It adds a truly unique element to your ceremony that friends and family will remember. The Cord of Three Strands Ceremony is a great addition to a wedding ceremony. Couples with strong spiritual beliefs are advised to add this short ceremony toward the end of the wedding ceremony. Keeping God at the center of your wedding ceremony may inspire you keep God at the center of your marriage. Every time you think back on your wedding ceremony, it will remind you of how God is intimately involved in your marriage. The Cord of Three Strands is a symbol of that sacred union created on your wedding day. Marriage takes three; you, your soon to be spouse, and God. It was God who taught us to love. 1 John 4:19, 19We love because he first loved us. By keeping Him at the center of your marriage, His love will continue to bind you together as one throughout your marriage.

It’s sad to accept that wedding ceremony has been commercialized, and to countless couples, its significance has diminished. Interestingly, the Grand Welcome Ceremony of believers into heaven is written in the Scripture as the Wedding of the Lamb. It says in Revelation 19:7-9, 7Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. 8Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.” Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people. 9Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.”

Have you prepared your fine line (righteous acts) for the Wedding of the Lamb? As we celebrate Christmas Advent, we hope for Christ’s 2nd Advent (2nd coming) to be sooner.

Lord Jesus, help me prepare for Your 2nd Advent.
