Psalm 149.5,1

The saints shall rejoice in glory. Verse: Sing to the Lord a new song.

The reading is from St. Paul's Letter to the Galatians 5:22-26; 6:1-2


Brethren, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. Let us have no self-conceit, no provoking of one another, no envy of one another. Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Look to yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.


- A WALK IN THE SPIRIT comes from life IN THE SPIRIT …


“Our walk with Christ is more than our ascetic practices, He more than religion, and He is more than a confession by mouth … If we have received the Holy Spirit, and so let us also live in the Spirit like St. Paul teachers … Our walk is action, it’s imitated and witnessed upon, and times you will be both surprised and blessed all at the same time … When I came Jesus, I knew there had to be more than just showing up once a week on Sunday’s, I have learned God should be a constant priority in our lives, He is to be trusted because you count on Him to help you heal and be content in our daily lives … If my walk in the Spirit does not include a life in the Spirit, it could cause me to grow spiritually dead rather spiritually sustained and fulfilled … The Lord wants us to shine our lights, and (v.1) of Galatians 6, teaches us the importance of how to administer proper correction with gentleness, this is a spiritual gift that comes from having a life in the Spirit on our walk with God, and (v. 2)- teaches us to bear one another’s burdens, St. Paul also teaches that each of that “each one shall bear his own load” – (v. 5) … Both are indeed true, so we are to initiate caregiving in our churches, and making sure none of become needless burdens on others, all this is obtained by living in the Spirit, this means we are committed to the Lord, and His Will” …

The Gospel According to Matthew 22:2-14


The Lord said this parable, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a marriage feast for his son and sent his servants to call those who were invited to the marriage feast; but they would not come. Again, he sent other servants, saying, 'Tell those who are invited, Behold, I have made ready my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves are killed, and everything is ready; come to the marriage feast.' But they made light of it and went off, one to his farm, another to his business, while the rest seized his servants, treated them shamefully, and killed them. The king was angry, and he sent his troops and destroyed those murderers and burned their city. Then he said to his servants, 'The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy. Go therefore to the thoroughfares and invite to the marriage feast as many as you find.' And those servants went out into the streets and gathered all whom they found, both bad and good; so, the wedding hall was filled with guests.

But when the king came in to look at the guests, he saw there a man who had no wedding garment; and he said to him, 'Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment?' And he was speechless. Then the king said to the attendants, 'Bind him hand and foot, and cast him into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.' For many are called, but few are chosen."


Who enters the Kingdom of God??? Like all the other parables, this one proclaims the transfer of the Kingdom from the faithless Jews to the Gentiles: The setting is set as a joyful wedding banquet – (v. 2; see also Matthew 25:1-13 – “We must be prepared”) – Christ is often called the “Bridegroom” in scripture – (Matthew 9:15; and John 3:29), St. Paul also uses this analogy for the Kingdom – (Ephesians 5:21-33) … The repetition of sending out servants shows the Father’s great desire and love to have all His people with Him in the Kingdom of Heaven … (v.3): First group is interpreted to be Moses and those with him, the second group – (v. 4): is all the prophets, the third group – (v. 9) represents the apostles sent to the Gentiles, who are now called, but originally was not invited …


“Our desire should be to always align ourselves with that of God’s desire, and love, He fought to ensure we could have an opportunity to call to Him for eternal life … Just like our Lord we need action to have the same desire, and it takes the entire package our soul, spirit and body – we must come to terms that it’s our relationship with Him, and our overloading need to align ourselves and be totally in tuned to His Will, to avoid spiritual death is never forgetting, that it is truly Him who makes us all complete” …


Numbers 6:24-26:


“The Lord bless you and keep you; 25 The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; 26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”
