Jesus is on a mission from God. God sent him to redeem us and make us right with God. Jesus knew the right response is for us to change our mind and respect Jesus.
That isn’t happening.
I have a choice to make today. Will I change my mind (repent) about Jesus or not? Jesus has options about who will be in control with him in God’s world (country or Kingdom).
Jesus will choose based on what I decide and do. Jesus will clean house. Jesus is clear.
“Finally there was only one left: a beloved son. In a last-ditch effort, he sent him, thinking, ‘Surely they will respect my son.’
“But those farmhands saw their chance. They rubbed their hands together in greed and said, ‘This is the heir! Let’s kill him and have it all for ourselves.’ They grabbed him, killed him, and threw him over the fence.
“What do you think the owner of the vineyard will do? Right. He’ll come and clean house. Then he’ll assign the care of the vineyard to others. Read it for yourselves in Scripture:
That stone the masons threw out
is now the cornerstone!
This is God’s work;
we rub our eyes—we can hardly believe it!”
