Righteous Wedding Clothes

“Friend, how did you come in here without wedding clothes?” (Matt. 22:12).

Remember the wedding, wherein you pondered the clothing that would be appropriate? Or, in getting ready, you put on your dress suspenders before donning your shirt? In our reading, Jesus is addressing the chief priests and elders of the Temple about a gathering for a select group, not just anyone, but God’s children to be dressed in the righteousness of Jesus.



Ponder: Does God Answer Prayer?
Scripture: “Whatever things you ask, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them” (Mark 11:24, NKJV).
A brother spoke to a friend about religion.
Friend: “Do you pray?”

Brother: “Yes.”

Friend: “Do you get what you ask for?”

Brother (being honest): “Sometimes, but not always.”

Friend: “So prayer doesn’t work; and God doesn’t exist.”


What Holds You Back?

“For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died” (2 Corinthians 5:14 NAU).

My father in law had a guard dog at work that was chained to a chair when he was in his office. One day I went to talk to him. He was with a salesman and he got up to show the salesman something. After they walked out I was still standing next to the door way. I didn’t know the chain was long enough for him to jump me. I was bit in the arm and stomach before I could move away. Fortunately, I got away, but not before I got hurt.
