10 Tweets on “You Gotta Go” (Matthew 22:1-14)

Here's last weekend's sermon in 10 Tweets:

1/ “You can stay. You gotta go.

2/ Ira Glass, “It’s as if by their status as strangers they have some special insight into who we are.”

3/ “Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruits.” (Matthew 21:43)

4/ The king would have to supply the wedding garment.

5/ He wants the feast, but only on his own terms. His silence condemns him because he really has no excuse.

6/ The ending s Jesus’ way of saying that the warnings he directed to the religious folks are also warnings for churched folks today.

7/ There will be churched people who say “Yes” to God’s invitation with their lips, but they say “no” to God’s call with their lives.

8/ There are churched people who will be excluded because they fail to produce the fruit of the kingdom.

9/ We are clothed in Christ’s righteousness through repentance and faith.

10/ Doing what God calls us to do and producing the fruit of the kingdom are byproducts of God’s work in us.
