Street Corners

The street corner can be an utterly   lonely   place . In the street corners   of your life you are irrelevant   and  many people pass you by.
 If The king  threw a party you wouldn't  expect   to be there ,I mean why would  mere men be invited   at the king's  table?
 The parable   Jesus   told in Luke 22 of the great king who throws this amazing   party for his son.
He sends out invite to the elite of the kingdom but everyone   of them have an excuse   and other businesses   to attend to.
Then he asks his servant to go out to the street corners   and invite anyone they find .  What an honor !
Now the party has started   and the king begins to walk amongst the guests finds  a man who is not properly   dressed .  He asks the guards   to throw him out . Why? The man was invited and  showed up you would think the kings would be more merciful . ..
 Many times we forget we are called to dine with the king. Our behavior   and appearance   must align with the environment   we find ourselves  . We don't go for a party in rags... neither do we go without a present   for our   host.
In the Christian   walk we must remember  that we are always at a dinner party   of the king's   son. We are to behave and look as such in order to honor   the son.
We must   be clothed   in His righteousness  which he already  bought   for us by His blood. We must honour   Him and the sacrifice   he made by walking   in the way . We walk in the way by abiding   in the Lord .
We must reflect the Christ who dwells within not believe   he is in us and have nothing   to show for .
We must be   clean inside out.
 At judgement   when He comes make sure you aren't  dressed in rags or out young I'll go where there will be gnashing   of teeth.
