I received my invitation, just like everybody else . . .
It was going to be the most amazing wedding of the century. The groom’s Father was going “all out”, with luxurious accommodations, exquisite food, gifts for those who came to the wedding and reception, with NO expense being spared.
The invitations stated “Formal Attire Only” and “Please R.S.V.P.”
I was looking forward to going to this wedding, since I personally knew the groom and his Father.
The invitations were sent out to friends, family members, associates and dignitaries throughout the world.
Sadly I heard many were replying to the R.S.V.P. with reasons why they could not attend.
Some of the reasons were quite lame, like “I just planted my field and need to be sure it’s watered that weekend”.
I felt so sorry for my friend, the groom, when the number of R.S.V.Ps. continued to come in, with so many declines.
All the preparations were in place for this magnificent wedding and reception . . . .
however, there were very few who would be attending.
So, the father sent out an email to all of the social service groups and told them to bring in the homeless, the ex-felons, the disabled and anybody else who would like to be there.
The father was VERY specific, however, and said “Formal Attire Only”.
Well, the day finally came for the wedding and reception. I was helping out the groom’s family by cleaning all of his horse paddocks, so the land would be pristine when guests arrived.
Much to my dismay, I let time “slip by” and did not have time to go home, get cleaned up and change into my formal gown. My clothes and boots were muddy . . .
BUT, I thought that since I knew the groom and his family, I could still maybe slip into the back and at least watch the wedding from a hidden corner behind a pillar. So up to the Mansion I went.
When I approached the main gate, there standing at the gate were groomsmen, all dressed in the finest tuxedos I have ever seen.
I went up to one and told him what happened and apologized, stating that I did not have time to go home, get cleaned up and change my clothes.
I asked if I could slip in the back of the wedding to at least watch the ceremony. OH NO, much to my dismay, I was told to go away.
I did NOT have the proper attire and would NOT be let in. I turned away, very sad, knowing I would miss that lovely ceremony.
I found out later, that the gifts the father was handing out to ALL of the guests, were a check for $1,000,000.00, along with a brand new Mercedes . . .
and an all-expense-paid trip to his private island paradise, where the actual reception would take place.
I MISSED IT!!! I was NOT ready!!! I knew what I had to do, but did not do it and I was left behind when the guests took off to the private island.
Matthew 22:11-14 –
“But when the king came in to look over the dinner guests,
he saw a man there who was not dressed in wedding clothes,
and he said to him,
‘ Friend, how did you come in here without wedding clothes? ’
And the man was speechless.
Then the king said to the servants,
‘Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness;
in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
’ For many are called, but few are chosen.”
DON’T DELAY . . . . TODAY MAKE SURE YOUR “SPIRITUAL HOUSE IS IN ORDER”.
ASK the Holy Spirit to search your heart and show you ANY area that is unclean.
REPENT from all sin (which means completely STOP what you are doing wrong and turn to Jesus).
FORGIVE all who sin against you.
JESUS IS COMING BACK FOR A PURIFIED BRIDE WHO LOVES & OBEYS HIM.
ARE YOU READY?
