Your question pertains to the final bit of this chapter where Jesus quotes from Psalm 118:22-23 and then interprets its meaning. Remembering the section right before this where Jesus excludes the religious elite from the kingdom He then goes on to state that the kingdom will be “taken away from you.” Who is the “you” in this sentence…is it the religious elite again…or is he speaking to the wider audience?
The further in my walk with the Lord I have come…the longer I have recognized that God’s calling upon our lives is a difficult thing. We are not called to live comfy lives, where our comfort zones are not breached and we are not stretched to a limit that we never thought ourselves capable of baring.
It is amazing isn’t it? To see how easily distracted we become when in the midst of another activity. It is almost as if it is nearly impossible for a person to only do one task at a time now a days.
In just a few weeks, my wife will give birth to our first child. As time has gone by I have thought more and more on the things I will be teaching him, and the ways I will be teaching him.
f God is a person as we concluded last week…then that truth needs to impact how we come to know who he is. Some approach the study of God with an almost scientific outlook. They catalogue facts of the biblical text, looking to reveal who God is through the study of the scriptures.
