“Missing: One Point”
Luke 14: 15: “And when one of those who were reclining at the table with Him heard this, He said to Him, ‘Blessed is everyone who shall eat bread in the Kingdom of God!’” The lawyers and Pharisees were experts at doing the right things for the wrong reasons and with the wrong motives. They thought the kingdom of God was about a happy future, when Jesus said, “Everything is ready now.” They gave dinners to be blessed themselves later, when Jesus wanted the needy to be blessed now (v. 13). Do we fall into the same trap? As the author of Hebrews says, we must pay closer attention (2: 1).
