The Kingdom Is Like a Marriage

To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 22.1-22.
Jesus spoke a parable (Matthew 22:1), and said, “The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son” (v. 2). The Kingdom of Heaven is like a marriage? Fabulous! However, not everyone likes the idea, for Jesus went on to say that the king, “sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come” (Matthew 22:3). It is not a good idea to reject the open invitation of this king. He who does not want a part in the marriage of Jesus to His church, will have no part in the Kingdom of Heaven. Accept Jesus and accept His church.
