The Wedding Feast

A table setting for an elegant dinner. The words, "For many are called, but few are chosen." Matthew 22:14

I love the Old Testament. It’s full of people just like me–imperfect. Yet God forgave them over and over again. He was (and is) always able to use a person’s hardened heart to fulfill His plans and bring glory to Himself. We serve an awesome and merciful God.

I also love the New Testament. Jesus paid the price for my sin and everyone’s sin for all eternity. We serve a loving God.

No other religion in the world has what ours has.

The Spirit of God lives within us.

– Our Bible is a breathing, living book that reveals to us what we need to know when we need to know it.

– Faith alone.

I’ve been reminded of the Parable of the Wedding Feast lately (Matthew 22:1-14). God chose the Israelites. He sent them a Savior as He promised. They were invited as guests to the wedding feast to celebrate the Bridegroom (Jesus), “But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business. And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them (Matthew 22:5-6 NKJV). I rejoice and praise God that He invited a sinner like me to the wedding.

“For many are called, but few are chosen.”

Matthew 22:14 NKJV

Father, I praise You and thank You for Your mercy and lovingkindness. I pray that the person reading this has a personal relationship with You and with Jesus. I pray also that they feel the presence of Your Spirit, guiding them through this life journey. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
