Respond to the call.
God is calling His people unto Himself, whether it be to repentance or to accept Christ as their Lord & Savior for the first time. Harden not your heart and answer the call of the Lord. He is beckoning you to speak to Him by speaking to your heart and by speaking to other people. Answer the call of The Lord and enjoy eternal life with The Father.
In Matthew 22 God speaks on Heaven by way of a parable. Within the parable God shares that Heaven is like a king throwing a wedding fest for his son and invites many people to come but due to their other obligations or desires, many reject the invitation. The parable also makes reference to people rejecting and killing the servants God sent to invite people to this wedding. Disappointed and enraged, the king destroyed those that rejected his invitation and burned their town. He then sent out invitations to many others, “good” and “bad” alike, because the wedding feast was ready, and he wanted all to enjoy. This however was not the case for when the king arrived at the wedding feast… a man was rejected and thrown out of the wedding for not dressing appropriately.
Considering that this was a parable, we know that a person was not removed from the wedding feast, which is symbolic of Heaven, because of their clothes. The clothes were symbolic of the righteousness of Christ. Romans 13:14 tells us to put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. God invites us all, “good” and “bad” alike, to enjoy eternity with Him forever – because of His Son Jesus Christ, but there is one stipulation – we have to be dressed properly. We have to be clothed in the righteousness of Christ. While good deeds and altered behavior are subsequent and follows conversion (and we will be held accountable for all that we do) it is the robe of righteousness, which we only receive when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior that grants us access into the Kingdom of God.
When we answer the call and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior we become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. We have to know that it is our faith and acceptance in Him that grants us access into heaven.
So if The Lord has been calling you in any way; calling you to repent (turn back to Him) or calling you to Salvation, all you have to do is respond. God wants us all at the wedding feast, (considering we are the bride of Christ. 😊
Answer the call and enjoy eternity with The King.
