Wedding Invitations


Have you ever given a party and no one came?  I have.  And so I sympathize with the host of the wedding banquet in Matt. 22: 1-14.  It's incomprehensible how people don't RSVP.  The first invited guests in Matthew's Gospel do respond negatively.  Their excuses were poor and insulting.  Then the hosts try again and the invitees kill the messengers!

The host reciprocated in kind.

So others were invited and enjoyed the feast.  There is one however, who wasn't dressed properly.  Not only that, he gave no reason for not being prepared.

Are you ready for heaven?  Or will you be unprepared?  You are invited.

R.S.V.P.
