Pastor E.V. Lightfoot
Sermon: "Go Out Quickly"
Sermon Text: Luke 14:21
Call to Worship: Psalm 33: 1-4
Responsive Reading: Luke 14: 15-23
Introduction: The Bible opens with a picture of God as the life-giving Spirit whose breath causes a pile of dust to become a living human being. In the Psalms God is pictured as a good and great shepherd who ministers to his sheep. In the New Testament we find God described as the compassionate Father who loves and wants to relate to his children. In Jesus’ parable of the marriage feast, he describes the Father God in terms of his being a generous and gracious host who has prepared a great banquet for those who will respond to his invitation.
I. We need to go out quickly because God’s banquet is ready.
II. We need to go out quickly because of the swift passing of opportunity.
III. We need to go out quickly because of the helplessness of outsiders.
IV. We need to go out quickly because of the command of Christ.
V. We need to go out quickly because of the compassion of the Father God.
Conclusion: Today let us go out quickly and say to those around us that a feast has been prepared. God offers the blessing of acceptance. God offers the blessing of forgiveness that is full and free. God offers the blessing of spiritual renewal and restoration. God offers peace and joy and hope and help and heaven. Everyone is invited to come to the banquet.
