Sermon for Matthew 22:1-14
Have you ever noticed that our worship is a lot like a wedding banquet? I mean, take a look around.
We’ve got this beautiful hall. We’ve got the flowers. We’ve got the banquet table. Candles. Music. I’ve got my robe on. I *think* we’re all….. whoa! Friends, where are your robes!?!? How did you get in here without wedding robes? Got you! Goes to show you that’s the kind of mess you can get into with Jesus’ parables. And funny, he tells a lot of them, doesn’t he? Anyway, today’s gospel is pretty challenging – just what is Jesus telling us here?
