social disconnect


devotional post # 2043

Luke 20:16-19 JDV

Luk 20:16 He will come and destroy those tenants and give the vineyard to others.” When the people heard this, they said, “This would never happen!”

Luk 20:17 But Jesus looked straight at them and said, “Then what is the meaning of that which is written: ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone’?

Luk 20:18 Everyone who stumbles over this stone will be broken to pieces, and the one on whom it falls will be crushed.”

Luk 20:19 Then the experts in the law and the chief priests wanted to arrest him at that hour, because they realized he had told this parable against them. But they were afraid of the people.

social disconnect

The people wanted to believe that their leaders were heroes, so they could not believe that God would judge them. They also wanted to believe in Jesus, so the leaders could not arrest him, or they might have a riot.

That same kind of social disconnect is evidenced all around the globe today. We have made the wrong people our heroes, and we want to believe in Jesus too. Eventually, what happened in Jerusalem showed that the social disconnect can only lead to betrayal of Jesus.

LORD, we renounce our worship of all heroes except you.
