Guest List

I was thumbing through my Bible when I saw these 2 scriptures were highlited, Colossians 1:17 and 3:17.  I sure don't remember when I did that, but I do remember a Max Lucado Study on Colossians.  So I dug around until I found the study booklet and began to thumb through it too!

And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.
Colossians 1:17

 As a reflection it ask that we imagine having a dinner party and inviting eight people, living or dead, great or obscure, and then tell why we would invite these particular people.

My Guest List:

Jesus Christ
No explanation needed.

The greatest teacher of God's Word.

Billy Graham
Today's greatest general in God's army.

Narcis Killough
My GG Grandmother, she escaped an Indian massacre with her one year old son.  They were the only survivors.

Swan Alvin Hutchins
Mr D.'s GG Grandfather, who was a circuit preacher.  He traveled Texas on horseback to share God's Word.

One of God's greatest prophets.

George Washington and Abraham Lincoln
True Patriots

Who would you invite to dinner?  Only eight, this is tougher than you might think.

And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
Colossians 3:17

Until Next Time
Wishing you happy days!


  1. I'm big on numbers and the fact that both of those are from verses "17", I had to look it up. The number 17 in scripture stands for VICTORY, Ms. Mary. VICTORY in JESUS!!! Isn't that awesome?!?!? As for my 8....I'm gonna have to ponder on that one, but of course JESUS would be #1!!! Thanks for this great post! Love you bunches!

  2. This made me smile. I thought right away of inviting an old friend of mine, Ricky, and intercessor from a church I attended long ago. He passed several years back, but Ricky was one of a kind, a man of prayer, and so bright, honest, and realistic. He was a hippie from that era, a Jesus People kind of person.

  3. Well, as I was reading your list, I decided I would love to meet the two GGGrandparents and your other guests could also easily be on my list. Please just set another place at the table for me, too!! As for Debbie's comment....Victory in Jesus is definitely awesome!!

  4. Something to ponder. Yes, Jesus would be first, then my parents, and children and grandchildren. oops that's more than 8, oh well just pull up another table. And I wouldn't want to forget YOU!
    Have a Great Day,
