John 3:29 “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.”

The Old Testament imagery of the Lord as the husband & Israel as His bride is shown in Isaiah 62:5 when it says, “As a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.” And here in this verse, the role of the best man or close friend of the groom is to wait, listening for the groom to make his entrance…rejoicing not resenting his role. But it’s when we take on the work of savior not servant in someone else’s life we will find ourself outside of God’s Will. For if we become the necessity in their life, and not Jesus, we have become their redeemer and thus block the way for the true Savior of their soul to work. Our job as best man is to point the way to Christ…not get in His way.
