Instead of musing on what is good or evil, let’s accept the calling of Jesus and dress ourselves with His apparel of justice.

  • “but you shall not eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. For in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” (Genesis 2.17).

This was the third commandment that the Creator imparted to the humanity and until today we misunderstand it and the worst: we turn down the compliance to this behest.

Many people believe piously that there are a battle between good and evil. Nevertheless, see what it is uttered in the parable:

  • “Then he said to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they who were invited were not worthy. Therefore go into the exits of the highways, and as many as you shall find, invite them to the marriage. So the servants went out into the highways and gathered together as many as they found, *both bad and good*. And the wedding was filled with reclining guests.” (Matthew 22.8-10).

Note that both, bad and good people was gathered together. It is entailed only that people accept the justice of Jesus in themselves.

  • “And the king coming in to look over the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. And he said to him, Friend, how did you come in here without having *a wedding garment*? And he was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, Bind him hand and foot and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. *For many are called, but few chosen*.” (Matthew 22.11-14).

So, we, as ambassadors of Christ (2Corinthians 5.18-20), instead of encumbering someone with rules and precepts, our role is to reconcile everybody that allow with Jesus (join them to the banquet of Jesus – Luke 14.17), regardless what they are before the world.

It comes the question: why did Jesus say “many are called, but few chosen”? What it happens is that, who doesn’t believe in Jesus, doesn’t have identity in the kingdom of heaven (Acts 19.13-16). All this people are like chaff (Psalms 1.4) that coalesce into a great mass to be burnt (Matthew 13.41,42).

So, have a pretty day in Christ Jesus full of gratitude for your singular importance.
