Are you Coming?
Luke 13:10-15-e, Psalms 42, 45
They all alike began to make excuses. The first said, ‘I have just bought a field, and I must go and see it. Please excuse me.’ Luke 14:18
It was a wedding. Invitations had been handed out well in advance. The whole community had watched as the family had prepared for the huge feast. Please understand this story. The excuses made by the people were not about things that came up beyond their control. The excuses were veiled insults directed to humiliate the host. How many times have you and I made lame excuses to God? Don’t be fooled—they are just as insulting today as they were in the first century. God invites you to celebrate life with him. There will be worship again this weekend. You know the time.
