If nyone hers my voice nd opens the door, I will come in nd et wi th him, nd he with me. Reveltion 3:20 For Younger Child ren: Techer s Devotionl Imgine tht footbll fn hs been invited to Superbowl prty prty AT the Superbowl, thrown especilly for fmily nd friends of the plyers! Airfre is pid nd the tickets re witing. Do you think tht the fn would likely sty home becuse the fn got pper cut or needs to give the dog bth? This might seem like n extreme exmple but when it comes to the Kingdom of God, some people s behvior might mke you think pper cut DOES outweigh Superbowl prty invittion! Jesus sys, Listen! W hen you her bout my love for you, be my friend. God s Word & M e Be redy to sy yes to God s invittion so tht you cn enjoy life with Him now nd forever. In prble Jesus told to Phrisee, He used fbulous bnquet s symbol of the hevenly kingdom. Though number of people ccepted the initil invittion, they suddenly gve excuses bout why they couldn t ttend when it ws time to go. A business del (buying field), possessions (oxen) nd personl reltionship (mrrige) were ll deemed more importnt thn the invittion to this lvish prty. So the host gve the guests plces to others including the blind, lme nd poor. Jesus well-educted Jewish listeners probbly recognized tht the story s undesirbles might hve been Gentiles nd tht the generous host represented God. To think tht non-jewish people nd undesirble ones t tht could be invited into God s kingdom would hve shocked Phrisees who prided themselves on their bility to follow Jewish lw to try to ern God s fvor. Tody, business dels, mteril possessions nd personl reltionships still prevent people from putting God first. But through His boundless love, God continues to invite ech of us to join the gret bnquet nd to be prt of His hevenly kingdom. There s nothing more importnt thn sying yes! to His generous invittion. It s better thn n exclusive Superbowl prty, ny dy nd it s forever! 171

Tody we re going to her story Jesus told bout n mzing prty! Wht do you think is in our Adventure Box tody? Let s find out! Untie box. Remove items from box nd use them to demonstrte story ction s you tell the story. Adventure Box In crdbord or wooden box lbeled Adventure, plce Bible, fncylooking invittion crd, fncy plte, cup nd utensils. Tie rope or brown yrn round the box or crte. Tell the Story One dy Jesus ws hving dinner with religious leder clled Phrisee. A Phrisee is someone who tried very hrd to obey every prt of the religious lws in Jesus time. This mn nd his friends were wtching Jesus crefully, looking to see if He did nything wrong. They wnted Jesus to do something wrong, so they could criticize him. During the mel, Jesus told them this prble. Once there ws welthy mn who hd wonderful ide! I ll pln nd prepre gret bnquet, he decided, nd invite my friends to come. I ll serve them dinner they ll NEVER forget! In Bible times, bnquet might lst for mny dys. People sometimes trveled long distnces to ttend. In mny cses, the invited guests styed overnight t their host s home, te his food nd were entertined by musicins nd dncers. Invittions would be sent out erly. Lter, those who hd sid they could come would be reminded or sent for when the bnquet ws ctully redy. So first, the mn sent invittions to his friends to come to the prty. Come to my prty, der friends! We ll enjoy gret bnquet together! And his friends replied, Of course, we ll be there! Finlly the big dy rrived! He sent his servnt to ech invited guest to tell them: Now everything is redy. Come to the bnquet! The mn s servnt cme to the home of one of the invited guests nd sid, Come now to the bnquet! Our mster is witing for you to be there s you promised. But the first invited guest sid, I ve just bought field, nd I must go nd see it. Sorry, but I cn t come fter ll. The servnt continued on to the next invited guest. He sid, Come now to the bnquet! Our mster is witing for you to be there s you promised. If only it were t different time, the invited guest shrugged. I ve just bought some prize oxen. (Oxen re like cows.) I must exmine them, weigh them nd be sure tht they re just wht I wnted. Tell your mster it is now simply impossible for me to come. Finlly, the servnt went to the house of nother mn who hd been invited. He sid, Come now to the bnquet! Our mster is witing for you to be there s you promised. The mn replied, Oh, sorry, I cn t come fter ll. I ve just gotten mrried! I m much too busy to ttend. The host wited t home nd finlly he herd the sound of footsteps in the courtyrd. But it ws his servnt, returning with the sd news. The mn ws UPSET when he herd bout his guests refusls! He hd plnned so mny wonderful surprises for them. Yet, they hd mde excuses nd broken their promises to ttend. But insted of cncelling the prty, the mn gve his servnt new commnd. Quickly, he commnded, go into the city! Tell everyone you see to come to my bnquet! Invite the poor fmilies who re hungry! Bring bck the disbled ones nd the blind beggrs! 175

6 So the servnt rn through the city streets nd down the bck lleys. Come now to the bnquet! Our mster is witing for you! And they did! The poor crried those who couldn t wlk. Lme people led the blind people. All of them entered the beutiful bnquet hll. When they were seted, the servnt reported to the mster. Sir, wht you commnded hs been done but there s still room left in the hll. Go out gin, insisted the mster. This time go out to the highwys. Find those who re tired of trveling, those who re resting beside the rods. Find the homeless ones who sleep under the bridges. I wnt my house to be FILLED with guests! Once gin, the servnt set out. Soon he returned with MORE guests. At lst the bnquet hll ws FULL! And wht sight! These guests hd never eten such delicious food. Never hd they herd such lovely music or seen such fscinting entertinment. There ws lughter nd songs nd the hll echoed with hppy voices. The mster ws stisfied with his prty! He sid, I tell you, not one of those men who ws invited will get tste of my bnquet. Jesus story clerly wrned ginst mking excuses to God when He invites us to become prt of His fmily. God s Word & Me Sometimes kids might think tht God s invittion to join His fmily is just for grownups, or they mke n excuse, sying, I ll think bout tht lter. But God wnts us to be people who listen now nd obey Him now especilly when it comes to joining His fmily! Wht do you think of the excuses of the people who were invited to the bnquet? (They were bd excuses! They showed the people invited relly didn t cre bout their friend.) sy yes to god Invite child to red Reveltion 3:20 loud. Wht do you think Jesus mens by eting together? (Hving reltionship, friendship.) Wht hppens if we don t open the door to Jesus? (We miss out on God s slvtion.)

Don t miss out on life with Him now nd forever! Pry with children, sking God s Spirit to help them know how much God loves them nd offers them slvtion through Jesus.
