[Jesus continued his parable about guests killing a king's servants who brought an invitation to a wedding feast for his son:] "The king was furious, and he sent out his army to destroy the murderers and burn their town. And he said to his servants, 'The wedding feast is ready, and the guests I invited aren't worthy of the honor. Now go out to the street corners and invite everyone you see.' So the servants brought in everyone they could find, good and bad alike, and the banquet hall was filled with guests."
— Matthew 22:7-10 NLT
God wants to throw a party! So there will be a party!!
Just because many people refuse God and do not accept his invitation does not mean he will forget those who have come to the banquet. Not only will he reward them, but he is absolutely determined to fill his hall with thankful and rejoicing guests.
But he will also deal harshly with those who have dealt harshly with his servants and who have not only spurned his invitation, but been merciless to his beloved children.
O Almighty God, I do look forward to the day when all that I hold dear is proved true. While I ache for those who will not know your salvation, I long for the day when those who have honored Jesus as Lord and have received your grace will get to share in his glory. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
