About The Mystery of Discipleship Series
Jesus’ closest disciples were trusted to speak for Him and tell us His story. All are called to the mystery of discipleship, but the choice is ours.
The Parable of the Great Banquet points to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Those who were invited made excuses and the host responded.
Luke 14:21 ESV
So the servant came and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house became angry and said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor and crippled and blind and lame.’
Those who have their joys in this life are invited. The feast is not exclusive! It is INCLUSIVE of all, but only the ones who anticipate this eternal event will hear the call.
The poor, the needy, the dependent—these are the ones who will attend. The needy pursued Jesus. The poor in spirit will be the guests and will accept the invitation.
