This morning I was reading John 3:29, 30. “The groom is the one with the bride. The best man takes his place close by and listens for him. When he hears the voice of the groom, he is swept up in the joy of the moment. So hear me. My joy could not be more complete. He, the groom, must take center stage. And I, the best man, must step to His side.” Lord, let that be the reality for me and my friend. May we experience the joy of hearing You talk with us. You take center stage as we listen. Nothing matters as much as that for our lives. Amen.
