An Invitation To All
So the last will be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen. Matthew 20:16
Read Matthew Chapter 20
Our Father in heaven offers us salvation. The gift is a free gift, given and distributed generously to those who would believe and receive it. Some may accept the gift later than others, but this does not change the fact that the wages that have been paid are the same. Jesus Christ, God's only Son, picked up the full tab for our salvation. Man cannot put a price tag on it. Today's verse also implies that just because others might have committed their lives to the Lord before us, this does not give them a special place of honor. Some folks feel they should receive greater favor from the Lord because they have known Him longer, while others never really respond to His call. However, we can be confident that God is fair. God is good, for no one is good except God alone. When we are finally with Him in heaven, all the foolishness of man's thinking will not matter. We will be focused upon Jesus. Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, (Heb. 12:2a)

Prayer: Father, thank You for making room for all who would believe.
