Many are Called...

I was sobered by the reality of Matthew 22:14 this morning,

"Many are called, but few are chosen."

Jesus said this at the end of the parable of the wedding feast. The feast's host threw out an unwelcome guest after realizing that the guest was not dressed in the proper attire. Matthew Henry commented, "Those that walk unworthy of their Christianity, forfeit all the happiness they presumptuously laid claim to." May we be Christians who walk worthy of the calling to salvation (Ephesians 4).

Thanks Kate!
