Sermon October 15 — Invitation to the Wedding Feast

In case you missed it, today’s sermon was on the invitation to the wedding feast in Matthew 22:9.

A Special Invitation

God has worked faith in our hearts to respond in joy to His gracious invitation. But our preoccupation with our personal agendas and the world’s allure can turn our hearts away. Jesus couches that problem in a parable. Worse, we might think that we can enter heaven, the eternal banquet, on our terms, supposing we need not be clothed in Christ’s righteousness alone. Yet God’s preoccupation is to keep sending out His special invitation to one and all. Our current circumstances mean nothing compared to the eternal banquet to which we are invited by the overflowing grace of God.
