God's Wedding Invitation—Mary Hunt

Are you now ready for Heaven's Wedding Feast?

Wedding at Cana by Mattia Preti, 1655

Gather my people, tell them to come.

Gather my people, I've sent my Son.

Tell them I love them, tell them I'm real.

I wait to touch them, I long to heal,

Everyone. Tell them, Come!

Would you miss heaven? Would you want hell?

Gather my people, you have to tell.

Tell them I love them, tell them I'm here.

Gather my people, I'll take their fear,

Everyone. Tell them, Come!

The feast is ready, the day is here.

Gather my people, tell them I'm near.

I stand at the door, the door of their hearts.

Knocking this hour, coming in power,

Everyone. Tell them, I come.

"Then he said to his servants, 'The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. 'Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.'
"So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests.
"But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment.
"So he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?' And he was speechless.
"Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
"For many are called, but few are chosen"
(Matt 22: 8-14 NKJV).
