Thankful to have a seat at the Kings table.
I am captivated by this parable where Jesus speaks to the fact that God has prepared a table before us and has called all his guests for a seat at his table. Many may have not known the benefits that went along with that so they shrugged it off. Then I find that Our Heavenly Father extended his grace to others the good and the bad to offer a seat at his table he has prepared. I never knew the significance of these passages of scriptures to our every day lives in Christ. (He prepares a table before us in the presence of our enemies. (Psalms23:5) At his table we have his grace, blessings, protection, and provisions and so much more. We are treated with such honor as his children.
Not only is it an honor to be invited into the kingdom but we are clothed in special wedding garments. (Christ) Holiness, Cleaned/spotless, and honored as his peculiar people.
But then as I look further at the passage, it states that someone came to the table without his wedding garments. I take it as he was not saved. And he was cast out. Perhaps he has seen all the blessings of the saved and wanted them too but without accepting the Son as his Savior.
Imagine wanting the blessings of God that come through acceptance of the Son but not wanting to honor the Son with his life. And At his wedding feast at that. Nerves right?
I guess it’s no difference if we say Lord, Lord but don’t really make him Lord of our lives. How can we expect to have a seat at the table and all blessings that go with it.
