The King’s Invitation

The King’s Invitation

Last week we finished Matthew 21 with a look at two parables that demonstrated the rejection of Jesus by the religious leaders. It’s important for us to remember that the chapter breaks in our bibles, while helpful, can sometimes separate things that go together. Chapter 22 opens with a third parable that Jesus gave on that occasion, and the three are all related. Jesus is escalating the picture and the intensity as he demonstrates the rejection that he will experience. In our parable today, that rejection is not limited to those that will hate and murder him, but even to those who are apathetic. What do you do with an invitation from the king? What would it look like to come to the king on your own terms, and what would happen if you did? We would love to know how we can be praying for you or ministering to you. Please reach out and let us know!

‘The wedding feast is ready, but those invited were not worthy. Go therefore to the main roads and invite to the wedding feast as many as you find.’ And those servants went out into the roads and gathered all whom they found, both bad and good. So the wedding hall was filled with guests.

Matthew 22:8-10
