Making the guest list
We give thanks to the Father every Sunday in our church service. Our thanks are for many things and many blessings, but our greatest blessing is that Jesus suffered, died and rose again so that we may be made new again. In other words, our sins are removed so we may have a place in heaven that is prepared for us.
Jesus spoke a parable and described the people that would are invited to come into heaven and find rest in the house of the Lord.
“Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor and crippled and blind and lame.’ 22 And the servant said, ‘Sir, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.’ And the master said to the servant, ‘Go out to the highways and hedges and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled.” (Luke 14:21-23)
We are the servants in the parable. We need to fill the ears of those that do not know Christ with the good news of the gospel, so they may hear and believe. We all should be part the our Lord’s guest list which gives us peace now and forever. The Father’s house has yet to be filled. Each of us can make a difference by witnessing to the world. Let’s invite others to fill our church and in turn fill rooms in heaven.
This November let’s not only give thanks to our Father in heaven on the 22th but take the time every day to remember what Jesus did for us and through him we reach out to fill our heavenly home.
Blessing to all
