New Testament Bible Meditation- February 16 - Text & Audio

Matthew 22:1-14   

Jesus answered and spoke again in parables to them, saying,
"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.
Again he sent out other servants, saying, 'Tell those who are invited, "Behold, I have made ready my dinner. My oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the marriage feast!"'
But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his merchandise,
and the rest grabbed his servants, and treated them shamefully, and killed them.
When the king heard that, he was angry, and he sent his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned their city.
"Then he said to his servants, 'The wedding is ready, but those who were invited weren't worthy.
Go therefore to the intersections of the highways, and as many as you may find, invite to the marriage feast.'
Those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together as many as they found, both bad and good. The wedding was filled with guests.
But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man who didn't have on wedding clothing,
and he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here not wearing wedding clothing?' He was speechless.
Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and throw him into the outer darkness; there is where the weeping and grinding of teeth will be.'
For many are called, but few chosen."

Insight- Jesus stressed upon the fact that many are called, but few are chosen for the kingdom of heaven. The wedding gown was given to all who came to the feast in olden times, but if one did not wear it, he was not worthy to attend the wedding, so also everyone is invited to be part of the Kingdom of heaven, but if they make light of God's requirements of living a holy life, they would be the losers.

Question- Are you wearing the robe of righteousness that is needed to be worn by everyone who is called to be part of the kingdom of heaven?

Prayer- Dear Father in heaven, let me be ever wearing the robe of righteousness that you give to all whom you call to be part of your kingdom. In Jesus name. Amen.
