It’s amazing how we can all read the same scriptures and get a different view,it’s because God knows what we need and I love that,this is what I was given concerning these scriptures.I’ve read them many times before and I’m just now seeing this.
1. Then Jesus began telling them stories: ”A man planted a vineyard, built a wall around it, dug a pit for pressing out the grape juice, and built a lookout tower. Then he leased the vineyard to tenant farmers and moved to another country.2 At grape-picking time he sent one of his servants to collect his share of the crop.3 But the farmers grabbed the servant, beat him up, and sent him back empty-handed.4 “The owner then sent another servant, but they beat him over the head and treated him shamefully.5 The next servant he sent was killed. Others who were sent were either beaten or killed ,6 until there was only one left — his son whom he loved dearly. The owner finally sent him, thinking, ‘Surely they will respect my son.
God has down through the years because of His love for us,sent many teachers and prophets. God’s word is the truth but it does no good to just read it and not listen for God to explain it. The many before us left us knowledge of God that we need daily. We too are servants of the Most High God,and we should be willing for God to use us any where and any way. The servants in the above scriptures had only their own agenda in mind. As we so often do,God can speak to us concerning another and we’ll just brush it aside,sometimes we really don’t recognize His voice,but most times we do. The owner of the vineyard in today’s lesson is God He has sent many servants down through the years. But we’ve been too busy to pay any attention to what they have to say. They as we know did beat and kill the servants of the Lord,from Abraham to Jacob and Issac right on down to Moses,Elijah,Joshua and Isaiah. “Hallelujah”! Praise God! He didn’t stop there but love moved Him to send Jeremiah,Ezekiel and Daniel ,Habakkuk and Malachi. You are getting the picture,God is an awesome painter isn’t He. Down through many generations God has given,and given and He’s waiting and waiting for you to hear him. Are You Listening? After all of these and so many other servants were beaten and killed,God decided to send His Only Son saying surely they will not kill Him. “Hallelujah” praise God! But as we know Jesus Christ God’s only Son was slaughtered,beaten beyond recognition and he did it for you and for me.God’s love for you is so great,please listen.
Heavenly Father please help us to hear your voice and to obey you in Jesus name.Amen
I just stopped in to ask for your prayers,my Niece she had a stroke 3 weeks ago. I’m going down to Augusta,Georgia to be with her for awhile. I hope to cheer her up for her daughter said she is so depressed. And of course we can understand that, because when you’re used to doing for yourself it’s hard when you’re now flat on your back. I want have access to a computer so let me thank you now for your prayers. I love the Lord and I know all things are in his control,so I’m leaning on him. Pray much for her salvation also.
Praise God I am,and I want to leave a “huge dent” in this world when I leave here! I want everybody to know that I dearly loved Jesus and that he meant everything to me. I can remember when I first got saved,it was so exciting and I wanted others to know.I wrote letters to all of my friends and family members about Jesus. I just knew they would be excited and want him in their lives too,but no it didn’t happen that way. Yes that was then,but what now? I am born again and I still want to let as many people as I can know,not because of me,but because of the love God has for them . Jesus Christ came to show us what God is like,God is love,and his love is good. Being born again does not mean we never sin,it means when we do sin,we have someone to run to,for forgiveness. Jesus does forgive us and he does not keep reminding us of our sins, religion does that. In a relationship with Jesus is like being in a family,we learn from him what he wants,and he helps us to do it. Jesus is so patient and kind,he’s long-suffering with us because he knows the flesh,and he knows we were born in sin. Jesus takes his time making us over and I’m so glad he does,because if not I would have been tossed aside. Being born again is the best thing that ever happened to me,and as I’ve grown in the Lord our relationship is closer and closer. Learning to know his voice is very important,in fact that’s how we learn to know his voice from his word. In this relationship with Jesus it’s important to know that trials and tribulations will come. Yes because satan is angry with God and he cannot do anything with God so he brings his attacks against us,Jesus has given us warning after warning to stay alert. We must be alert against these attacks because satan is cunning and he will have you believing God is against you. Once we come into a relationship with Jesus Christ God is for us,and that’s more than the whole world coming against us.But if we don’t know that you’ll give up and turn back to the world. In this world there will be many things and many people coming against us,even our own family members will turn against us,but we must pray and hold on. Jesus Christ gives us strength through the precious Holy Spirit,and he helps us by reminding us of God’s word. It is a wonderful thing being in a relationship with Jesus and if you’re not,please consider giving your life to Jesus because he truly loves you.
(2 Corinthians 5:17 What this means is that those who become Christians become new persons. They are not the same anymore,for the old life is gone. A new life has begun! ) And in this newness it takes time to grow up so don’t beat yourself up,wait on the Lord Jesus,he will do the makeover.
