The Great Supper

December 25, 2017 Length: 14:25

The Parable of the Great Supper is read 2 Sundays before Nativity, and also a passage from Colossians; both are about the incarnation and what our reaction to it must be, in this life, and the future. If we are to truly "put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him" (something possible ONLY because of the incarnation), then we must take to heart the spiritual meaning of the king’s instructions to his servants, when he told them to search for the most sinful, broken souls and "compel them to come in" to His supper. If we understand the incarnation, we will, in imitation of the Incarnated One, be COMPELLED from within to CHOOSE to not be free, so that we may someday be "free indeed". Colossians 3:4-11 Luke 14:16-24 2017
