Keys to Fashion (video)
This is message 6 in the series "Counter Cultural Keys of God's Kingdom", given by Pastor Reid Matthias.
The third parable in a series directed to the religious elite of Israel is one so outrageous that it seems as if it could be summarily dismissed. It’s one thing to resist working in the vineyards, but to reject an invitation to the king’s wedding banquet? Unbelievable. In a moving allegory, Jesus connects with the religious leaders through the wedding story, but then at the end of his story, perhaps two parables put into one, even those who were invited later must wear the appropriate clothing for the feast.
In this parable, we are left to wonder what, exactly, is the correct wedding outfit? What does God want us to wear in order to experience the Kingdom of heaven?
Read Matthew 22:1-14 in preparation for our Sunday thoughts on The Keys to Fashion.
