Sermon Illustrations

In Matthew Chapter 22 we read of a parable that Jesus gave. A king made a marriage for His son, and he sent forth his servant to bid people to the wedding. He told them that he had prepared a dinner, and asked them to come to the wedding. They would not come, so he sent the servant forth again. They made light of it and went their ways. He told his servants that the wedding was ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.

He told them to go to the highways and bid them to come to the wedding. The servants went to gather all they could find to come to the wedding.
