"Jesus replied: A certain man was preparing a great banquet and invited many guests." NIV
"Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many."KJV
There are multitudes upon multitudes of people invited to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. Some say they will come, but fail to make preparation and allow other activities and pleasures get in the way. Those do not come to the Lord. There are many who will take this course and not accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. But God's plan, which will be done, is to extend His invitation to the far reaches of the earth, through you and me. His kingdom will be filled with those who are willing to come no matter what this earth holds for them.
Heavenly Father, we cannot praise You enough for inviting us to partake of eternal life through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Help us tell others everywhere we go that they, too, are invited. May Your kingdom be filled with those of pure hearts and lips of praise. In Jesus' name, Amen.
