COMMUNION MEDITATION (22): God’s Party


“Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.Matthew 22:9

Bread and WineWhen God gives a party, He invites everyone.

The first ones invited declined. They went off – to the field or to business.

So God sent His servants to invite anyone they could find to the banquet.

Like those who heard this parable, at times I think I have my place with God locked up – while I ignore His invitation.

What makes me think this? Do I focus on the externals instead of the heart?

Later in this chapter, a lawyer asked, “What is the greatest commandment in the law?”

You know Jesus’ reply by heart:

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments. – Matthew 22:37-40

To do this, I must welcome all who come to God’s party.
