Not just called, but chosen

Many people feel they have a “calling”—whether in sports, business, the arts, teaching, farming, etc. However, it’s interesting that in concluding the parable of the king’s wedding celebration for his son, Christ Jesus said, “Many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14).

What did he mean? Jesus offered the way to universal salvation; he pointed out clearly the path to absolute freedom from all limitations of mortal belief, yet he recognized how very few were actually prepared to take the needed steps forward, out of material belief, to follow his example of Christ-healing. 

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
