Jesus compares the Kingdom of God to a wedding banquet hosted by a king. God has extended an invitation to all of us to come into His kingdom, but many have refused, to include those who seem to be religious. We refuse the invitation to enter God's Kingdom because we're preccupied with our own pursuits or because we're unafraid of God's authority. Some of us even try to accept the invitation, but we try to come on our own terms. We want grace without repentance, we want righteousness without letting go of our sin, we want to show up to the wedding wearing the our dirty old sweatpants. The invitation has been extended to us all, but have we accepted it?
