Wanting Jesus' place!

Can you find a picture of anyone you know in this parable!

"A man planted a vineyard, rented it out to some farmers and went away for a long time. At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants so they would give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent him away empty handed. He sent another servant, but that one also they beat and treated shamefully and sent away empty handed. He still sent a third, and they wounded him and threw him out." 1*.

Jesus told this parable as a picture of makind's response to God the Creator - the One who made and "planted" this world and then told man "to work it and take care of it." 2*.

Man now claims this world as his! Haven't you heard it called "our world"?

The parable shows what happens when God sends His faithful messengers to warn man that he is responsible to God for his life and living.

Today many still don't have any time or interest in the preacher who comes with God's message. For some it was bad enough having to listen to their religion! But for someone to say that they must check up in the Bible to be really sure of the message of God, that is unthinkable! 3*.

What is your response to hearing that God wants your life and mine to be lived in obedience to His Word and to produce things pleasing to Him? Many today still cannot restrain themselves from hurling abuse, spit, threats and even stones at those who dare to tell them that God expects us to love and obey His Word, the Holy Bible? 4*.

How did the owner of the vineyard react at not getting what was rightfully his? He said, "'I will send my son, whom I love; perhaps they will respect him.'

"But ..the tenants ..said, let's kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.' So they killed him." 5*.

When God sent His own Son to mankind with God's Gospel 6*. He was rejected and killed! Instead of them giving God what was due to Him - their love and obedience - they sacrificed His Son with their wicked hands! 7*.

God tolerated that evil against His Son, but just that ONCE, because through that, Jesus was offering Himself to God as a substitute for your sins and mine. 8*.

But what will become of those who still want to take the Son of God in their wicked hands and sacrifice Him day after day? - and who even ask you to pray that such a wicked deed will be acceptable to God!! The same will happen to them as happened to those who dared to lay their hands on the vineyard owner's son in order to take his place. The owner came to "kill those tenants."!

So it will be with God; He will judge and destroy those who are wanting Jesus' place as Leader and Saviour 9*. and who dare to think they can repeatedly sacrifice Jesus. 10*.

Did the parable remind you of someone you know?

Make sure you're trusting in the sacrifice Jesus made once for all! 8*.

Read in Luke's gospel chapter 20, verses 9-16 about the tenants who foolishly thought they could take the son's place.
