Jesus not only enjoyed being a part of the party, but being able to call the party. Jesus loved events that brought people from all walks of life together in celebration! His first miracle of turning water to wine happened at a wedding banquet. Throughout the New Testament, the Kingdom of God is described as a great party, and Jesus lived that truth out. He invited everyone and anyone to join in the celebration!
As we begin to land the plane on our series, Meet the Neighbors, we are reminded that God’s neighborhood is always marked by joy. We experience that joy when we participate in and invite others to the party.
