“Who’s invited!?” We receive the Evite and scroll through the list to see who else will be there. How many people? Do we get along? Are they fun?
What we’re really asking is, “Is this worth our time to spend time with these people?” In Luke 14, Jesus tells us these questions aren’t good for parties or for life. Jesus seems to want us to be less concerned with whether or not we are getting what we want from this party and more concerned with being gracious and welcoming hosts. The real question is not, “Who’s invited?” but, “Whose party is it, anyway?” Listen as Pastor Melanie Vaughn-West takes a look at Jesus’ invitation list.
