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 Feast” is a preparation for Jesus’ most extensive discourse about discipleship. The story holds the secrets of God’s view of disciples.
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.’
We are all born with Adamic independence, and the world system encourages human strength. So the strong will not need the Lord. The self-sufficient never would bow to enter. The ambitious will not care to attend. The worldly will not follow Christ. And the religious will not want to attend!
Only the needy, the weak and the poor sought out the Lord when He walked here. He never knocked on doors. He never invaded and truly, He never begged anyone to follow Him.
Jesus offered. He invited. But the response is yours…and mine.
