As I was walking down the ag hall of our local high school recently, I spotted this saying on one of the bulletin boards:
"You are setting the banquet table
for the feast you are going to eat
the rest of your life."
I am quite sure the words were meant for teenaged decisions of what to or not to do---about studying, career choices, things which might enhance or destroy their lives.
But I couldn't help but think about us and our Christian faith, whether we feast with Jesus in heaven or not. He has prepared the feast, set the table, and put out the invitation.
Have we sent back in our RSVP or not? Ultimately, it's our decision. Not His!
"...a man sitting at the table with Jesus exclaimed,
'What a privilege it would be to get into the
Kingdom of God!'"
~ Luke 14:15 LB
