R.S.V.P.


I am sure you have received more than one invitation with those letters indicating the sender would like a response.  Let me ask you today to consider the best invitation you could receive.  Would it be an invitation to a sporting event, perhaps Super Bowl 50 with all expenses paid?  Would it be an invitation to enjoy your dream vacation with someone else picking up the tab?  As I prepare for the upcoming “big day” with Lake Pointe Baptist Church in Dadeville, Alabama, I am thinking about the best invitation anyone can receive.

No, it is not one of those just mentioned.  The best invitation ever is a simple word from a Single Source yet with profound implications!  Almighty God, the Sovereign Creator and Ruler of the Universe, has said to all of humanity-to each person throughout time- “Come!”  The Bible makes it very plain in a number of places that God has invited you and me to “come”.  We are invited to “come, and…reason together” in Isaiah 1:18.  We are invited to “come” to the Lord when we are weary and burdened that He might give us rest (Matthew 11:28).  We are invited to come and purchase “…without money and without price” in Isaiah 55:1-3. In Matthew 25:34, Jesus teaches about the final judgment and once again provides the invitation to “come” to those who are blessed of God  (“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. ).

Think about it today:  The Lord of All Creation invites you to join Him in an everlasting relationship in which you receive all the benefits and He covers all the expense! What greater invitation could there be?  By the way, I believe His invitation comes with an “R.S.V.P.” too.
