Wedding Invitation
For many are called, but few are chosen. Matthew 22:14
Read Matthew Chapter 22
Attending a wedding is a special event. A lot of thought and planning goes into celebrating the couple's special day. Most people, if they know wedding etiquette, will come to a wedding fully prepared. Proper etiquette includes: putting on our best clothing, bringing a gift, arriving on time, and being willing to stay for the reception that generally costs the couple's families a lot of money. Normal etiquette requires that we have a personal relationship with the bride, the groom, or their families. In the parable of the wedding feast, all were invited but few responded to the call to come. Many made light of Christ's invitation. Why? Many refused to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. They were unwilling to put on the wedding garments that are required to attend the occasion. Some folks believe that this is not fair, and that Christ only chooses certain people. Nothing could be further from the truth. Another way to look at this parable is, many were invited, but few responded to the invitation. Remember the proper etiquette! You have been invited to a special event, to come and celebrate the marriage supper of the Lamb. You must respond, you must RSVP. You must come believing in Him who has invited you. You must have a personal relationship with Him. You must be willing to put on the wedding garments.

Prayer: Father, thank You that You invite all to come. We pray that more would respond.
