One of the first challenges of planning a wedding is deciding who will be invited. I just finished a sermon on the parable of the wedding feast (Matt. 22:1-14). As we all know, the number of invitations impact the venue, the amount of food, and ultimately the cost. Thirty-six years ago, mine was a modest wedding. A wonderful celebration of a new beginning! But I can still remember those who could not be there. In the parable – the king finally goes into the streets and invites anyone and everyone. And God is still inviting everyone – into His love and to a feast where Jesus is both the host and the meal – given and shed for you. Can you believe it? EVERYONE is invited!
