The Correct People at the Masters Table Reading: Luke 14.

12-14 Luke 14:12-24 KJVR Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbors; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompense be made thee. (13) But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind: (14) And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just. (15) And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God. (16) Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: (17) And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. (18) And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. (19) And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. (20) And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. (21) So that servant came, and showed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. (22) And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. (23) And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. (24) For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper. It’s an amazing thing when friends get together. We love to share with each other. Why would Jesus then say that we should not call our friends to dinner? What would they do if they were called? What is gained in sharing a dinner party with each other? Who then should we invite? Read verse 15. What is the kingdom of God? Matt 6.33 Matt 12.28 Matt 19.24 Matt 21.31 to be sought after Part of if we cast out devils Hard to get into Easy for sinners to get into

Matt 21.43 Mark 4.11 John 3.3-5 Rom 14.17 1 Cor 4.20

Can be taken away A mystery Must be born again to enter Righteousness, peace and joy in the holy ghost It is power

Luke 14:16-18 KJVR Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: (17) And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. (18) And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. Possessions: Matt 6.24 Luke 14:19 KJVR And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. I have work to do: Luke 10.38-42 Luke 14:20 KJVR And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. It’s my love or you and I choose now. Luke 14:26-28 MSG "Anyone who comes to me but refuses to let go of father, mother, spouse, children, brothers, sisters--yes, even one's own self!--can't be my disciple. (27) Anyone who won't shoulder his own cross and follow behind me can't be my disciple. (28) "Is there anyone here who, planning to build a new house, doesn't first sit down and figure the cost so you'll know if you can complete it? Notice, what happened when the message was given to the master concerning all these people. Luke 14:21-24 KJVR So that servant came, and showed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. (22) And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. (23) And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. (24) For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.

Its is nice that we fellowship together, but if we don’t invite others to the tables, then we are not in accordance with the word. The real purpose of salvation is what? Luke 19:10 KJVR For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. Mark 16.15
