‘Come, for everything is now ready’

Preachers Corner https://www.preacherscorner.org.uk

The parable of the great supper illustrates God’s invitation in the Gospel for all to come to him for salvation. Have you come to Jesus? God has provided a wonderful Saviour who’s able and willing to save you form your sins.

Bible Scriptures: Darby Translation 

Luke 14:16-2416 And he said to him, A certain man made a great supper and invited many.17 And he sent his bondman at the hour of supper to say to those who were invited, Come, for already all things are ready.

18 And all began, without exception, to excuse themselves. The first said to him, I have bought land, and I must go out and see it; I pray thee hold me for excused.19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them; I pray thee hold me for excused.20 And another said, I have married a wife, and on this account I cannot come.

21 And the bondman came up and brought back word of these things to his lord. Then the master of the house, in anger, said to his bondman, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring here the poor and crippled and lame and blind.22 And the bondman said, Sir, it is done as thou hast commanded, and there is still room.23 And the lord said to the bondman, Go out into the ways and fences and compel to come in, that my house may be filled;24 for I say to you, that not one of those men who were invited shall taste of my supper.”

Luke 23:39-4339 Now one of the malefactors who had been hanged spoke insultingly to him, saying, Art not thou the Christ? save thyself and us.40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost *thou* too not fear God, thou that art under the same judgment?41 and *we* indeed justly, for we receive the just recompense of what we have done; but this [man] has done nothing amiss.

42 And he said to Jesus, Remember me, [Lord,] when thou comest in thy kingdom.43 And Jesus said to him, Verily I say to thee, To-day shalt thou be with me in paradise.”

Hebrews 9:27-2827 And forasmuch as it is the portion of men once to die, and after this judgment;28 thus the Christ also, having been once offered to bear the sins of many, shall appear to those that look for him the second time without sin for salvation.”
