Daily Service: Many are called
Lord help me to convey the message you would have me speak.
Matthew 22:14 below has many companions in the gospels; the wide road and the strait gate (Matthew 7:13), 5 foolish bridesmaids (Matthew 25:1-13), whosoever will (John 3:16), ten lepers healed, one returns (Luke 17:11-19).
Throughout the gospels and epistles, time and again the point is made. God calls to all of us, it is up to us to respond to the call and receive all that God wants us to have from His Bounty.
Matthew 22:12-14 (NKJV) So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ For many are called, but few are chosen.”
This is my answer to predestination: God wants the whole world (all the people, not just the ones you want to recognize as worthy) to be saved but it is a matter of free will and choice to follow God or not to follow God. In the end we will all bow to Him, the question is whether you will hear “Well done my good and faithful servant”.
