WILL BE TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU
Matthew 21:43-44 “Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and to a people who will produce its fruit. He who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed.”
Some people today trip over Christ and are broken. They blame God for the wrong in their lives. They think of God as the problem or the source of all their troubles. Some even claim to hate God.
Christ is the answer to all the troubles and heartache. Jesus offers forgiveness sand mercy now, but will give judgment later.
Choose now. Build you life on Christ.
THE STONE THE BUILDERS REJECTED HAS BECOME THE CAPSTONE
Matthew 21:42 “Jesus said to them “Have you never read in the scriptures: The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes?”
Jesus refers to himself as the stone that the builders rejected. But he became the capstone, the cornerstone of the new church. The capstone unites the two sides of an arch and holds it together. Jesus holds the whole church throughout the world together.
Without Jesus Christ there would be no church here or anywhere.
COME LET’S KILL HIM AND TAKE HIS INHERITANCE
Matthew 21:38-40 “But when the tenants saw the son they said to each other, “This is the heir. Come let’s kill him and take his inheritance.” So they took him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?”
So they crucified the Son of God. He suffered and died a horrible death to save us.
Now what will the Father do to those who have not accepted His Son, Christ?
