What is the most amazing party you have ever been too? Perhaps it was a wedding or a birthday party or a special event for the holidays. Whatever it was – it pales in comparison to the dinner party we will attend in heaven!
If you think we will be bored – sitting on clouds listening to sermons in heaven – you have it all wrong! Heaven will be a joyous celebration! All of this world’s disappointments, sorrows, worries and trials will be completely gone. Heaven is a place of great joy.
Join me on this video as we discuss the parable of the Great Banquet from Luke 14. You are invited to the ultimate party!
Revelation 19:6-9 (ESV)
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb
6 Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,
For the Lord our God
the Almighty reigns.
7 Let us rejoice and exult
and give him the glory,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
and his Bride has made herself ready;
8 it was granted her to clothe herself
with fine linen, bright and pure”—
for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.
9 And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.”
You have a seat at the table of the Ultimate Party.
Live like it!
Live with joy – defiant joy. Jesus said: “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
You have a great hope in a great God who loves you so.
Keep Walking with the King,
