Wedding Garments and Sacrament (Medium)

Word Compass

What is a wedding garment? How does it relate to the sacrament? We’ll use a parable, the garden of Eden, and the sacrament emblems to illustrate.

The Parable: In Matthew 22 is a parable of a king preparing for the wedding of his son. The following is a summary:

The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son. He sent servants to invite those whom he called to come, but they would not come. They made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise (they were distracted by the cares of the world). Those that remained took the servants and treated them poorly and slew them.

Such a treatment made the king angry, so he sent his armies and destroyed those who rejected the invitation, and burned their city.

This kinda ruined the king’s plans…
