JESUS! THE SON OF GOD AND THE SON OF DAVID!
Have you not read this Scripture: “The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; this was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes.” — Mark 12:10-11
And as Jesus taught in the temple, he said, “How can the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David? David himself, in the Holy Spirit, declared, “‘The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet.’ David himself calls him Lord. So how is he his son?” — Mark 12:35-37
Jesus is the Cornerstone. Everyone who knows Him will plumb and level their lives after Him and His will. If this is not the case then the life lived will be faulty. Those who do not know Jesus have a building of their own making which will come crashing down. Those building from and on the Cornerstone listen to Him. Those who do not build from and on the Cornerstone do not listen to Him.
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” — Matthew 7:24-27
Jesus is both Lord and the Son of David. There were those who did not understand this at that time and today. It was prophesied of His birth that “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”) (Matthew 1:23; Isaiah 7:14). “He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory” (I Timothy 3:16). Yes, Jesus is Lord God and Son of David— our Savior!
What a marvel, Dear Father, that Jesus would come to this sin infested planet because of His love for us! I am grateful and now may I live the rest of my life in gratitude by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus. So may it be! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUxI-ynsTnM
