We may be sweetly broken by falling on the One who has authority to destroy both body and soul in hell. This is the beginning of salvation. The fulfillment of salvation is to be entrusted with His kingdom by abiding in Him (like a branch bearing grapes, connected to the vine). The process is painful but significant. This type of weighty importance brings God’s glory to the forefront. – Teresa #bougieandblessed #brokentobehealed
Matthew 21:42-45 (ESV)
42 Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:
“‘The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;[b]
this was the Lord’s doing,
and it is marvelous in our eyes’?
43 Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruits. 44 And the one who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; and when it falls on anyone, it will crush him.”[c]
45 When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they perceived that he was speaking about them. 46 And although they were seeking to arrest him, they feared the crowds, because they held him to be a prophet.
