God is the vineyard owner and has planted our lives like valuable vines that He desires to produce fruit.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Matthew 21:43 - I tell you, the Kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a nation that will produce the proper fruit.
Read - Matthew 21:33–46; Mark 12:1–12; Luke 20:9–19
Jesus continues to teach the religious leaders of Israel that their denial of His Lordship will result in their damnation and that now the fruit that God desired that nation to produce will be expected from others. That means that God would graciously offer His blessings on a broader group that included most of us reading this text today!
Lord, any part of my life that denies Your authority is in sin and I surrender it to you.
God offered salvation to His people (Israel). Some accepted Christ and were Mended. Others rejected it and remained Marred by Sin. Jesus is the Cornerstone of salvation which means any other ‘method’ to be saved (works, etc.) will result in a house that does not stand.
