The Sincere Trust In Jesus Christ
I believe that the Lord has a very special plan for each of His children. We may not know what it is or how it works into the bigger picture. For lack of a better comparison, just as in a factory there are people doing very specific jobs. At each of the jobs in the factory the ones working that job, usually, do not see how the finished product is going to turn out.
Well God knows what the finished product in His children's lives is going to look like. It will be as white as snow cleansed through the blood of Jesus Christ. Oh what a joyous day that will be when Jesus comes for me. There will be no more pain, no more sorrow, no more death. Jesus Christ will wipe away all tears from our eyes and there will be great rejoicing and praises given to the King of Kings.
In the parable where the King had made a marriage for his son. The king sent out his servants to tell all that where invited to come that everything was ready but none was going to go. At the end of this parable we see that there is one man that is among the guests that when the king came in he noticed that the man was not wearing a wedding garment. This man may have thought that he was dressed in his finest clothes and did not take a wedding garment to wear. This man thought that he would be fine wearing what he had on. Oh how wrong he was.
The king ask the man, friend why did you come here not wearing a wedding garment and the man was speechless.
Then the king told his servants to bind the man hand and foot and throw him into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
For many are called but few chosen.
When we go to church in our Sunday best let us go there to worship the one and only true God Almighty. Let us not go there to be gossips and judges of others. Let us go there to worship together as brothers and sisters in Christ. God knows all of us and He knows what is in our hearts. Some may fool themselves as well as others but they will not get through at judgement day. Christ tells us that few are chosen.
Be sure of your sincerity and love of God and put all trust in Jesus Christ for He is the only way.
1: And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
2: The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
3: And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
4: Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
5: But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
6: And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
7: But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
8: Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
9: Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
10: So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
11: And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
12: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
13: Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
14: For many are called, but few are chosen.
