Pastor Carter Conlon has served as the Senior Pastor of Times Square Church for many years. In a few months he will be transitioning into a different role and answering a call that the Lord has placed on his life to move through open doors nationally, to instruct pastors all over the world, and to continue guiding the affairs of the church. Pastor Tim Dilena has been called by the Lord to be the new Senior Pastor at Times Square Church. In this season, with these men of God as examples, know that we must follow the Lord wherever He would call us. Do not turn away from the banquet that God has set for us. No more excuses! Abraham could have complained and refused when God called him out, but he went. God has opened doors for you that no man can shut. In this moment you must choose to commit to fully following and obeying Jesus. Say yes to Him!
Now when one of those who sat at the table with Him heard these things, he said to Him, “Blessed is he who shall eat bread in the kingdom of God!”
Then He said to him, “A certain man gave a great supper and invited many, and sent his servant at supper time to say to those who were invited, ‘Come, for all things are now ready.’ But they all with one accord began to make excuses. The first said to him, ‘I have bought a piece of ground, and I must go and see it. I ask you to have me excused.’ And another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to test them. I ask you to have me excused.’ Still another said, ‘I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.’ So that servant came and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house, being angry, said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor and the [f]maimed and the lame and the blind.’ And the servant said, ‘Master, it is done as you commanded, and still there is room.’ Then the master said to the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. For I say to you that none of those men who were invited shall taste my supper.’ ”
