Click on the above for the guide for Luke 14:7-24.
Monday: What do you see in Luke 14:7-24 for which you can praise the Lord? What does He desire? Pay particular attention to verse 23. What one way would you live differently if you desired more what He desires?
Tuesday: What do you make of the future kingdom of God being compared to a feast (Luke 13:28-29; Revelation 19:6-9)? How should anticipating this future event affect how we live in the present? Hebrews 12:2-3
Wednesday: What are those things that you tend to obsess over and become more preoccupied with than the focus of this banquet? Look again at Luke 14:18-20. Which of these are hindering you most from full devotion to Jesus: The cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, or the pleasures of this life?
Thursday: Why do you think Jesus calls God’s banquet “great”? What does the prophet Isaiah say occurs at this banquet? Examine Isaiah 25:6-9. What was the price paid to secure your spot at the banqueting table? Read Colossians 1:19-22. Who and how many enjoy this final, eternal feast? See Revelation 7:9; 19:6.
Friday: Are you dressed and ready for this feast? Have you washed your robe? What does Revelation 7:14 mean? Compare this passage to Matthew 22:11-13.
Who is God putting upon your heart to compel them to come to Christ? How do we compel others to come to Jesus? 2 Corinthians 5:20-21
Saturday: When will the end of time come and Christ consummate His kingdom? Does anything have to occur before this happens? See Matthew 24:14. Pray that God would enable us to do our part in His great enterprise!
