Dear friends and family, we are all gathered here today in the presence of the true God to unite Wesley Cruddas and Brielle Jimmink in marriage!
Who gives the Bride to be married?
YOU MAY NOW BE SEATED
· CHARGE:
Well I am thankful to be here in the presence of your friends and family Wesley and Brielle, and that I have the honor of getting to unite you two in marriage under God.
It is always a joy to get to see two people who are in love with one another, who want to commit their lives to one another, and yet don’t forget the ONE WHO FIRST LOVED US. They’re the ones that remember that in order for them to love each other properly as we were created, they must know what Love is first. And that is none other than Jesus Christ our Lord. We give Him praise and honor this evening for bringing you two together and blessing your relationship.
I think, from speaking to you two a few times in preparation for the wedding and knowing Wesley for quite some time... You two have figured out and known, that the purpose of your relationship, the very goal of you two being together is to glorify your King. It is to represent the marriage between Jesus Christ and His bride, us. We are to look at the way that Christ loves us, and serves us, and forgives us, and never leaves us. And we are to copy that in our relationship all while chasing after Him with each other.
I absolutely love your prelude song in “Be Thou My Vision”. I got to looking at the lyrics and I got to thinking… man this sounds a prayer that maybe a couple may say together right before they are about to be united under God (It’s beautiful) ….
Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart; Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art; Thou my best thought, by day or by night; Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.
Be Thou my wisdom, and Thou my true Word; I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord; Thou my great Father and I, Thy true son; Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.
Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise; Thou mine inheritance, now and always; Thou and Thou only, first in my heart; O King of glory, my treasure Thou art.
O King of glory, my victory won; Rule and reign in me ’til Thy will be done; Heart of my own heart, whatever befall; Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.
So, this evening we begin with that prayer for you two.
But before I marry you two and allow you Wesley to give Brielle here a kiss for the ages… I wanted to remind us all that it starts with your own hearts.
In Ephesians 5:21 Paul says “And further submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.”
OUT OF YOUR OWN deepest respect and awe for Christ, it is there that you submit to one another.
Paul then continues to talk about marriage in Ephesians 5
“22 For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23 For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church. 24 As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything.
25 For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her 26 to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. [a] 27 He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault. 28 In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself. 29 No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the church. 30 And we are members of his body.
31 As the Scriptures say, “A man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.”
LOVE EACHOTHER, like Christ first loved His bride.
LOVE IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR!
In 1 Corinthians 13 we have the very popular LOVE CHAPTER!
1 If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. 3 If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; [a] but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.
4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
Love… is what will hold you together. But not just any kind of love. Surly not our very imperfect love that come from humans. The love of Christ. The agape love. The love that is unconditional.
It all swings back to what Paul said in Ephesians… OUT OF YOUR REVERENCE OF CHRIST, then comes your submittance to each other. Wesley you are forever on this earth committed to loving Brielle, serving her, leading her & your future family BECAUSE OF YOUR REVERANCE TO CHRIST.
Brielle, you are forever on this earth committed to loving Wesley, serving him, submitting to his leadership, BECAUSE OF YOUR REVERANCE TO CHRIST.
It is truly a beautiful thing when you see it portrayed in a Godly marriage.
LOVE EACHOTHER OUT OF YOUR REVERANCE OF CHRIST.
And how bout we get to that marriage part?
· Vows:
Well, I don’t know about ya’ll, but I’m ready for you two to say your vows and get on with this wedding!
Wesley and Brielle have both prepared their own Vows for each other!
And so Wesley we’ll allow you to start us off with your Vows for Brielle.
WESLEY SAYS VOWS TO BRIELLE.
Brielle, the floor is now yours for your vows to Wesley.
BRIELLE SAYS VOWS FOR WESLEY.
· Ring Ceremony:
AND NOW FOR THE RINGS! YES!!
Can I have the rings…
Wedding rings are awesome! They really become a part of you. They serve as a fitting symbol of the vows you have just spoken to each other. They are the outward and visible sign of an inward and invisible reality. They are a symbol of the love that binds your hearts together in God.
They are a symbol of this love in at least two ways…
First as the rings are of the finest of earth’s material’s, so your love should be rich in its Godly alignment and spiritual value.
Second, as these rings have no beginning and no end, so they symbolize the perfection of the UNENDING LOVE OF CHRIST as a model for which you should strive for in your marriage, a relationship that should also have no end in this earth.
PURITY AND ETERNITY is what should characterize the love you have for one another.
As a token of your vows, you will now give and receive the rings.
Wesley, you will give this ring to Brielle and repeat after me.
I Wesley, with this ring, pledge my love and life to you, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Brielle, you will give this ring to Wesley and repeat after me.
I Brielle, with this ring, pledge my love and life to you, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
IT IS NOW MY PRIVILEGE TO PRONOUNCE YOU HUSBAND AND WIFE! WESLEY, YOU MAY NOW KISS YOUR BRIDE!!
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… IT IS MY HONOR TO PRESENT TO YOU MR. & MRS. Wesley Cruddas
· EXIT: “The Throne Room & End Title”
