Reading: Matthew 22:1-14
“So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests” – Matthew 22:10.
I was just pondering on the phrase “both good and bad” from the verse quoted above. Even the “good” had to be invited—otherwise not even them can just gain entry into the wedding hall.
My friend, have you already responded to God’s invite?
“And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” – Ephesians 2:6-10 (NIV).
