Top scientists were invited to a party, and this is how they replied (Warning! only avid science students will understand every reference):

Ampere was worried he wasn't current.
Audobon said he'd have to wing it.
Boyle said he was under too much pressure.
Darwin waited to see what evolved.
Descartes said he'd think about it.
Dr Jekyll declined — he hadn't been feeling himself lately.
Edison thought it would be illuminating.
Einstein thought it would be relatively easy to attend.
Gauss was asked to attend because of his magnetic personality.
Heisenberg was uncertain that he could make it.
Hertz said in the future he planned to attend with greater frequency.
Mendel said he'd put some things together and see what came out.
Morse's reply: "I'll be there on the dot. Can't stop now, must dash."
Newton planned to drop in.
Ohm resisted the idea.
Pavlov was drooling at the thought.
Pierre and Marie Curie were radiating enthusiasm.
Stephenson thought the whole idea was loco.
Volta was electrified, and Archimedes buoyant at the thought.
Watt reckoned it would be a good way to let off steam.
Wilbur Wright accepted, provided he and Orville could get a flight.

In the gospels, Jesus frequently compared the kingdom of God to a feast — a time of joy and festivity.
What a blessing and an honor it was to receive an invitation from the king or someone who was well-to-do. And all of us have received an invitation to be a part of God's kingdom, a place of joy.

Jesus replied with this illustration: "A man prepared a great feast and sent out many invitations. When all was ready, he sent his servant around to notify the guests that it was time for them to come. (Luke 14:16-17)

You have received an invitation from God.
As Jesus points out in the verses following, not everyone who receives the invitation will enjoy the wedding, though — only those who choose to attend. Unfortunately, many of us will allow the things of this world to get in the way and keep us from attending.

You have received an invitation from God. He is waiting for an R.S.V.P. Have you made your plans to attend?
