Come to the banquet
Luke 14:17-20 (NIV) At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’ “But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said, ‘I have just bought a field, and I must go and see it. Please excuse me.’ “Another said, ‘I have just bought five yoke of oxen, and I’m on my way to try them out. Please excuse me.’ “Still another said, ‘I just got married, so I can’t come.’
We have been invited by Jesus to the greatest feast we could ever imagine! This is the banquet of all banquets!!!
But sadly not everyone will accept the invitation to enter the Kingdom of God.
The excuses were endless with busyness and worldly pursuits gripping the hearts of many saying they couldn’t come.
The invitation has gone out to be a part of the kingdom of God and all that He wants to offer us. If we say no, the parable explains, He will go out on the streets and invite others (v23).
You do NOT want to miss out! Accept your invitation today to this wonderful feast with King Jesus!
