Matthew 22:14 “For many are invited, but few are chosen.”
Many people are invited to come to the Lord’s wedding feast. The wedding feast symbolises the kingdom of Heaven. But some people refuse God’s invitation to celebrate, and others who do come refuse to submit to the norms of the wedding dress regulations.
It’s like some people love the fact they will be blessed in God’s heaven. So they respond with repentance and faith. While others accept God’s invitation but do not accept his conditions of repentance and faith and as a result they are excluded.
They want Jesus as their Saviour but not as their Lord!
God loves all people, ‘For God so loved the world…’ (Jn 3:16) but not everyone accepts God’s love. The invitation of the gospel is preached to the whole world and reaches many, but few are those who respond to the gospel effectively who will be considered the chosen ones.
If Jesus is your Lord and Saviour, Praise God. You have every spiritual blessing with the wedding feast to come!
