Wednesday’s Word - Here, put this on.

            Have you ever been invited to any sort of event, function, shindig or whatever where you had to ask…”So what should I wear?” It’s a most appropriate question. I mean who wants to show up somewhere looking totally out of place, right?

Even though we know that all Scripture is God breathed, certain verses really hit home with a clarity that is undeniable, compelling an answer of decision.

            Jesus spake parables concerning the Kingdom of Heaven which really speak to many different facets the Father’s interaction with the world. Please take some time to look at Matthew 22; There Jesus is explaining how the Kingdom of Heaven is like a king who put together a wedding ceremony and banquet for his son. Luke’s (ch 14) account of the parable focuses on the excuses of those who wouldn’t attend, Matthew focuses on how the servants who went to gather the guests were treated. But Matt 22:11 and following goes on to discuss how guest were treated if they showed up without the proper attire for the wedding of the king’s son.

            Now we hear so much from television about how grandiose celebrity weddings can be: how much the flowers and champagne costs, who the decorator was and the who’s who on the invite list. But I guarantee to the truth of scripture 1 Cor 2:9 eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him

Here’s the Word:
Galatians 3:26-27 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

God’s preparing the most monumental event of the ages; the great commission directs believers to hand out the personal invites. The best outfit your closet or credit card has to offer won’t do. So what you gon’ wear?
