A certain man gave a great supper and invited many, and sent his servant at supper time to say to those who were invited, Come, for all things are now ready. But they all with one accord began to make excuses.
Luke 14:16-18

The parable of the great supper illustrates impressively God’s grace, which was first offered to His people Israel, but now is preached to all on earth. Long before, prophets had announced God’s grace that brings salvation, and it appeared in the Person of Jesus Christ. The feast to which the guests were invited illustrates this.

Joy over the appearance of God’s grace in sending Jesus is recognisable in the angels’ praise at His birth: “Glory to God in the highest and peace on earth, goodwill toward men!” (Luke 2:14). Christ is the centre of this feast. As a Man He enjoyed God’s full approval. He was the beloved Son, the Father’s joy.

People are invited to this feast of grace, which depicts the joy of heaven. How do the invited guests respond? How do they regard Jesus Christ and His grace? “They all … began to make excuses.” Without exception they made various duties their excuses. The time didn’t suit them. They might well have come, but their land and their oxen were more important. And the last excuse was even more feeble: “I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.”

We are all invited to partake of God’s grace. It is better to forget our excuses and accept the invitation. It is now time to come to Jesus by faith!

Today’s reading: Joshua 10:28-43 · 1 Corinthians 9:16-27
