I have been thinking lately about this scripture
2“The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son.
3“And he sent out his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding feast, and they were unwilling to come.
4“Again he sent out other slaves saying, ‘Tell those who have been invited, “Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and my fattened livestock are all butchered and everything is ready; come to the wedding feast.”’
5“But they paid no attention and went their way, one to his own farm, another to his business,
6and the rest seized his slaves and mistreated them and killed them.
7“But the king was enraged, and he sent his armies and destroyed those murderers and set their city on fire.
8“Then he said to his slaves, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy.
9‘Go therefore to the main highways, and as many as you find there, invite to the wedding feast.’
10“Those slaves went out into the streets and gathered together all they found, both evil and good; and the wedding hall was filled with dinner guests.
And I have been thinking, relative to this scripture:
In Jesus day, the rules and culture of those who believed they were following God
- but were not (according to Jesus) -
got in the way of the enjoyment of God's banquet;
in that case, for the Jewish people invited.
The invitation went out to a wider circle - and here we are.
In our day, the rules and culture of those who believe they are following God
- but are not (according to Jesus) -
are getting in the way of the enjoyment of God's banquet;
in this case, for the Christian people invited.
The invitation continues to go out to a wider circle
Who will God invite to the party, next?
