In Gods economy festivals where designed for three objectives: 1) Thanksgiving - show appreciation and reflect on the things God has done. 2) Fellowship - with God and with one another. and 3) Prophetic - for telling and forth-telling. Why do we respond to the invitation? We respond to the invitation: 1) According to the value we place on the person who has invited us. 2) Based on what we stand to gain. 3) To show gratitude. What will be your excuse: 1) The invitation is worth the sacrifice, 2) There is enough provision and 3) God is saying everything is ready.
