Today’s QT raised the question why was the guest without wedding clothes punished? The original guests didn’t come, and the party just rounded anyone willing to come, both good and bad, like the gospel. Then it was explained in the QT reflection that back in that time, it was customary for the host to provide wedding clothes to guests, so the man not in the right attire is willfully disrespecting the host. In this care, this too is like the gospel, where the gospel is preached, and people can choose to wear it or don’t.
Christ is my Lord, but my actions do not always match that of actions my Lord wants from me. I’m tough on myself for these things, but at the same time, this is why He is who He is, and came to do what He did. That’s the amazing grace, and in some ways, the worse I am, the greater his grace. But worse I am, the worse it is for me.
