The Wedding Garment   1 comment

Matt. 22, 11-13

1.  The king made a feast–salvation is of God and for us prepared.

2.  All were invited to it.  Christ died for all and invites all–all can be saved since he is sincere in his call.  Some rejected [it] and others neglected the call.  This [is] the one reason some are still in sin.  Such are not worthy, who accepts it are.  Now he sends abroad the invitation.

3.  Many came–outwardly formally accepted the invitation.  Many join the church–an outward profession–this is good but not sufficient.

4.  The king came in to see the guests.  What a solemn moment.  He found a man without a wedding garment.  If we are not clothed in righteousness, robed in white, he will expose our folly and reject us.  Such neglect is a serious offense to all parties.

5.  He was speechless when asked the reason for his neglect.  Great was his consternation.  A neglect he could easily have avoided or corrected.  “Cast him out.”  God will reject all who are without religion.

6.  Then let us be sure of a genuine religious experience.  Attend to this at all hazards.
