“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 22:14

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“Many are invited, but few are chosen.”

.

– Matthew 22:14 (GNT)

.

REFLECTION…

.

The dreadful truth is

that the majority of those to whom the Gospel is offered,

will either openly reject it

or secretly disobey it.

.

Therefore, while all are invited,

it is unfortunately clear that the world is doing all it can

to ensure that many will not qualify

to reap the eternal blessings

that God has prepared for all of us – His beloved creation.

.

Many hear,

few believe.

Many accept the invitation,

but not all are ready to comply with its conditions.

.

If we feel that we are among those

who have accepted the Lord’s invitation and are complying,

we need to make sure that we regularly look closely at ourselves

to see if we are truly living the Gospel of Christ,

and passing it on, lovingly, to others

by word of mouth,

by deed,

and by example.

.

“Many are invited, but few are chosen.”

These words of Jesus in no way conflict

with God’s will that all should be saved.

In His love for men,

Christ patiently seeks the conversion of every single soul,

going as far as to die on the cross.

However, God in His infinite wisdom respects man’s freedom,

and man is therefore free to reject grace.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord Jesus, You for loved me and gave Yourself for me.

Lord, I want to do the same for You!
