Broken Or Destroyed? 

FEBRUARY 27 & 28, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Luke 20:17-18And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner? Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    An old Jewish proverb says, “If the stone falls on the pot, alas for the pot; if the pot falls on the stone, alas for the pot.” It would seem that either way the pot is to be broken and of no use.

    In our verses, we read of two ways in which the stone, which is a symbol of Jesus, might be used. If we choose to humble ourselves, fall on this stone, and become broken, God, the Master Potter can pick up those pieces and make something better and new out of them. However, if we wait until the stone falls on us, we are then ground to powder. The powder is mingled with the dirt below and becomes of no use. When the wind blows, the powder is blown here and there, never to be of any use to anyone.

    I guess it comes down to our free will. We have the freedom to come and fall on the stone, Jesus, and to be broken and then used by Him for His honor and glory. On the other hand, we have the free will to wait and do nothing. In the end, the stone will then crush sin and the vessels that contain it. Either way, you will eventually come in contact with this stone. I once heard if you fall on a bolder, you will form to the image of that bolder. However, if that same bolder falls on you, you are destroyed.   

 

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    Choices are often hard to make. However, this one seems easy. If you have never fallen on the mercy of God, I might invite you to do so now. If you have, it is time to praise God for what He is making of you. You are becoming a vessel worthy of Him that He can use. Once broken pieces, now molded together by the Master’s touch.

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
