A Mighty Fortress Is Our God, Hymn #200

Lesson

Matthew 22:1-14

The kingdom of heaven is likened to a wedding banquet that is spread and announced by the lavish grace of God. It is free to all, and all are eventually invited. If God invited so many, why do so few actually attend? Leave it to depraved human nature to drag its feet, to make excuses, or to seek admission while dressed in its awn rebellion! “Many are invited, but few are chosen.”
