The kingdom is like a marriage

Matthew Bible Background

New Testament: Matt 22.1–3

To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 22.1–22 on February 2, In the year of our Lord Christ 2020

By Don Ruhl

Jesus spoke a parable (Matthew 22.1), and said:

“The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son…”

– Matthew 22.2

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a marriage? Wonderful! However, not everyone likes the idea, for Jesus went on to say that the king:

“…sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come.”

– Matthew 22.3

It is not a good idea to reject the open invitation of this king. He who does not want a part in the marriage of Jesus to His church, will have no part in the Kingdom of Heaven. Accept Jesus and accept His church.

Questions:

  • Are you a member of Christ’s church?
  • Do you seek to please Christ the King in all that you do?
