Jesus shared a parable about a wedding feast. A week is required for such a celebration, which is a long time to take out of a person’s busy life. And it’s all the more challenging if he or she doesn’t understand how special the occasion will actually be. It’s the same way in taking that first step toward God. Maybe we don’t have the full picture. But God promises that His event is one not to be missed, and He’s immensely gratified when we jump at His offer.
We need to be careful, though. There’s no “Maybe” on God’s RSVP card. He takes no pleasure in a person who submits his life to Him begrudgingly. With Jesus we’re either all in or all out; there is no middle ground. Saying yes to Christ means receiving Him not only as Savior, but also as Lord of our life. For many of us, it’s the toughest decision any of us will ever make.
