Text: “Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding robe?” Matthew 22:12
Sermon: “Fashion Police”
Synopsis: Jesus often uses wedding customs of his day to describe the working of God’s Kingdom. In this week’s passage, an unsuspecting quest is banished from a wedding reception for wearing inappropriate attire. At first, it seems as though the poor man is being treated harshly and unfairly. Would we throw an invited guest out of a party for showing up in the wrong outfit? As we take a closer look, however, a hidden agenda emerges that may justify the host’s discourteousness.
