To read the Bible in a year, read Luke 14.1–24 on April 13, In the year of our Lord Christ 2019

By Don Ruhl

Someone in the crowd declared a blessing upon anyone who eats bread in the kingdom of God. Then Jesus taught a parable of a man who made a great feast and invited many people to come, but they all made excuses for why they could not attend. So the man did this next:

“So that servant came and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house, being angry, said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor and the maimed and the lame and the blind.’”

– Luke 14.21

If those who had the capability did not want to go to the feast, then the man in the parable wanted those who were not capable, and who typically were not invited to feasts, to come to the massive feast that he had prepared.

Those whom the world might consider unworthy, the Lord invites into His kingdom.

Questions:

  • Are you going to the Lord’s feast in heaven?
  • If so, what makes you think that you are?
