You yourselves can testify that I said, ‘I am not the Messiah but am sent ahead of him.’ The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete.
When my father remarried, I was his best man. I am his only daughter and I think he chose me because he didn't want to choose between my two brothers. It was a fun experience! I'd been a bridesmaid and matron of honor in friends' weddings, but never a best man. I had to learn what the honor entailed, which was, basically, doing anything needed to make sure everything went smoothly for the wedding and reception. The most important responsibility was being a witness as they said their vows. I was honored to share in the joy I saw in my dad's and stepmother's faces as they said their vows.
We can also be the best man (or maid of honor) for Jesus. We can do whatever is needed to help advance the Kingdom. We can show His love to others. We can witness and tell others of the Good News.
