Today’s Word: Wedding:
[ The Parable of the Wedding Feast ] And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables and said: “The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son, and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come. Again, he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, “See, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding.” ’ 5 But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business. 6 And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them. 7 But when the king heard about it, he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. 8 Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. 9 Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.’ 10 So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests. Matthew 22:1-10
As a Christian these verses tell me that just because I’m a Christian sitting in church does not mean that I’m saved if I’m not doing God’s will. This is a parable and, the Christians are the ones being invited to come to the feast by Jesus, but they refuse Him calling them over and over. After a while, the so called believers are left to their own unwise choices and then the call goes out to the ones in the world which would be the unbelievers.
So this tells me that God loves the unbelievers just as much as He loves the Christians and He will give them a chance to come to Him, and actually the parable says that many of the unbelievers in the word did go in to the feast, which means that they must have had a transformation and turned to Jesus and was saved.

When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him.
This verse reminds me not to think too highly of myself.
Can you imagine….would be pretty embarrassing to have to be move to let someone else sit there. Thanks for commenting.
“I will greatly rejoice in the Lord; my soul shall exult in my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation; he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself like a priest with a beautiful headdress, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” Isaiah 61:10 ESV
The Lord has clothed us in His love, has married our hearts. I lifetime commitment, my heart is forever embraced within my love! Blessings!
