Sermon Outline:

The Eternal Bride Groom rejoices over his bride (the church) with…

  1. A new name
  2. A new family
  3. A new joy


  • You might not be married and want to be or you might not be married and don’t believe marriage is in your future. These are just as powerful signs as a healthy Christian marriage because they point to the reality of the coming kingdom. If you desire to be married but haven’t yet, know that this points us to a kingdom that is desired but not yet here. If you don’t desire marriage there is a freedom that comes enabling you to be available in unique ways for God’s kingdom and his call.
  • If you’ve seen a marriage fail that doesn’t mean what it points to fails too. We can uphold the good even in the midst of the hard.
  • Practically Jesus brought the good wine to the wedding in John 2. As a sign of his presence in your life, the next time you are invited somewhere don’t just show up with the bare minimum bottom shelf offering bring the good wine with you both to bless and demonstrate the goodness of God.
  • Because of this sermon, how is your life changed, matured, or was challenged?
