Celebrate and Party!

I love the thought that we’ve have been invited to the marriage of heaven and earth.  This is the meaning of the biblical phrase, “new heavens and new earth.”  And, we are not just to be observers, but participants!  Revelation depicts this with Jesus as the groom with the church as his bride.  However, you envision this, we are to be part of the greatest celebration that’s ever occurred.  In fact, the celebration has already begun.  When Jesus walked out of the tomb a new era began.  Old things are past away, “I am making everything new!” (Rev. 21:5). 

I loved the depiction of the king in today’s parable.  The ruler of all pleading with people to come enjoy his bounty.  The supreme ruler refusing to be offended by those who deserved to be punished.  The royal lord and master welcoming all to his table of blessing without taking into account their past or their mistakes.  Only a fool would refuse such a gracious invitation from such a loving host.
