The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone. This is the Lord’s doing, and it is wonderful to see. Anyone who stumbles over that stone will be broken to pieces, and it will crush anyone it falls on. —Matthew 21:42, 44
Rejection of Jesus is an eternal mistake. To reject the One who created all things and sustains them is forever fatal. He Who is all powerful beyond our ability to fully grasp came to this planet because of His love which we barely comprehend because He desires us to be in relationship with Him. Yes, this is the love God has for us and His Awesome Son, Jesus, came to show us. Rejection of Him leaves a person with no hope!
Puny man exaggerates himself into something he is not and nations do the same. Nations go to war with each other, seeking to crush their enemy. Men and nations seek to expand their territory crushing their opponents. It is a temporal futility. Life spans of men and nations are short. In the end “the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever” (Daniel 2:44). Now tell me, what kingdom would you rather be a part of— a temporary, short lived one or an eternal, never ending one?
If you have not entered that eternal kingdom I would encourage you to now! Here are the keys to do so— https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZD6khv6pGkw
Dear Father, thank You for rescuing me from the dominion of darkness and bringing me into the kingdom of the Son You love, in whom I have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. I am so grateful. Now may I live out that gratitude by being faithful to You in the Name of Jesus and by the Holy Spirit’s power.
