Jill went through great lengths to keep her dress a secret until our wedding day. I even remember how much care she took to make sure I didn’t catch a peak of her bridal portrait shoot.

Apparently, things are changing.

According to a recent survey, 19% (almost 1/5) of grooms say they are either solely or mostly responsible for selecting their bride’s wedding dress. I don’t know about you, but that sounds strange to me.

On second thought, this new trend does reflect a biblical truth. The Bible refers to the Church as the “bride of Christ” (Revelation 19:7-9). In fact, verse 8 describes the garments we (the Bride) will wear in Heaven.  “…it was granted her to clothe herself with fine linen, bright and pure”— for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.”

At first it may sound like these fine linen garments are of our own choosing. After all, it does say that the very linen is the “righteous deeds of the saints.”

But, hang on. Think about that phrase again.

Any righteous deed we perform is actually a result of Christ’s righteousness that has been placed on us “not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith” (Philippians 3:9).

And, since Christ has placed His righteousness upon us at the moment of salvation –we can start exhibiting His righteousness now with Christ-like works. We are “created to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).

So, in a sense, you could say that Christ chooses our heavenly wedding garments! Just like the old hymn states, we are “dressed in His righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne!”

Hal: one might just as easily say I am confused, as I have hardly defined “masala” and if one isn’t careful one runs the risk of applying it to anything one wishes (I don’t think I do but I am suitably chastened that greater precision is needed; perhaps that is a post for the future). In the meantime, t if you haven’t already…
