A Non-Negotiable Invitation !
Jésus guérit les malades, mangea et but avec les exclus et les pécheurs,
ouvrit les yeux des aveugles et proclama la Royaume aux pauvres et aux démunis.
The King, our Lord has prepared a great banquet The invitations have been sent. Through negotiation, many have refused the request to attend and participate in the feast for the Son of God. This parable from Matthew lists excuses about work as a provider or ones’ livelihood. From Luke, the justification is the need to try out a new means of transportation, new machinery for work or to spend time with family. Rejected, the great provider turns his face from those who have also turned their face. The welcome is redirected to those who will listen, those who realize; nothing could be better than a feast by the King for his Son. The invitation is Non-Negotiable. They attend and in this they are blessed physically and spiritually, with the peace of eternal life. Over the years, these past few decades, Sunday worship and fellowship has become Negotiable, resulting in an acknowledgement with only what ever is left in time, energy or in our gifts. God is calling us to our first love, to accept the invitation to the banquet, to be called and saved from the shadow of anxiety, fear and loneliness.
Do not forget the Lord our God; make the banquet of our Lord Non-Negotiable. Claim your seat at the great feast of our Lord, Sunday Eucharist. Then stay a little while after to enjoy Epiphany hospitality in the banquet of fellowship which leads to a renewal in your life and in the lives of others.
