We will look at three Scripture references tonight. I
want to talk briefly to you about three suppers to
which all people are invited.

The first one is in Luke 14, beginning in verse 16

picture here of what salvation is all about. He has
compared salvation to a great supper - a great
banquet.

When you come to the Lord Jesus Christ you are not
coming to a funeral, you are coming to a feast. The
devil has done a pretty good job convincing people
