Please have a pencil/pen, paper, and a bible handy for our zoom call 7-8.30pm on Sunday.
This week we are reading the parable of the wedding banquet. Some of it is pretty direct, but there are a few bits that could be read in different ways. Have a good conversation with your parent/carer about it and we'll talk about it on Zoom too!
READ: Matthew 22:2-4
THINK: Hopefully you'll realise this isn't about an actual banquet. It's a story that shows a bit about the kingdom of heaven. The invite to the wedding feast can be compared to God's invite to heaven.
So.... who do you think these people in the story represent? Write down/draw a stick figure of each person and write who you think it might be.
Here's the list: The king, those who didn't come to the feast, those who did come to the feast, the one who came to the feast but did not wear wedding clothes. (hints if hard: in no order, match them with... someone who accepts Jesus, someone who doesn't, someone who hears about Jesus but doesn't do anything about it, and God).
MAKE: an invite to heaven! It needs to include:
Who is inviting you (God!)
Some good things there could be in heaven
How to RSVP - by accepting Jesus as God and the only one to pay for the things we have done wrong against what God asks.
If you can, bring it to the Sunday zoom meeting (we'll pick an invite we'd like!)
Worship song video "I am who you say I am". Are the words what you would think too? Why/why not? Listen again and if you want, sing these words in your heart too.
Nothing but the Blood
God bless your week!
