What if We Threw A Party ~ April 7

What if We Threw A Party

And nobody came

“The Kingdom of Heaven is like a certain king, who made a marriage feast for his son, and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the marriage feast, but they would not come.” Matthew 22:2-3

We lived in a small neighborhood on Lake Travis for a while, and we loved to have get-togethers down by the lake, and throw parties at our house. The parties always seemed to start out with very few people there and grow as the afternoon or evening wore on. The trickling arrival of guests, especially when the party was at our house, would always bother me, and I would worry and fret that no one was going to come. Eventually, after we’d lived there for several years, I got used to the pattern, and knew the people would eventually fill the house, and we’d have a great time.

Jesus has invited us to the biggest party of all, and the invitation states we don’t need to bring a thing. He’s made all the preparations and will supply everything we need to make our visit unbelievably enjoyable, and… we can stay forever!

I imagine He wonders why some are hesitating to come, but I also think He knows those He sent a personal invitation to will eventually arrive. I was one of the stragglers, and I could kick myself for not arriving sooner. It’s a great party!

    You capture that stress of throwing a party perfectly. And you’re right – there are those who straggle…but they eventually find the way. 🙂
