“But when the vinedressers saw the son, they said among themselves, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and seize his inheritance.’”
-Jesus told a parable of a landowner who planted a vineyard, built a hedge around it, developed a wine press & tower in it, & leased it to vinedressers. When the harvest time drew near, the landowner sent his servants to collect his fruit but the vinedressers seized them; beat one, killed another & stoned a third. When he sent his son, the evil men killed him with the intention of taking over his estate. Such evil occurrences have been evidenced often times in our societies today where many have lost their father’s inheritance & financial resources. God sent His only begotten Son Jesus; to bring salvation into the world but some did not believe in Him & others nailed Him on the cross. We are told that those who do not believe in Christ & exercise evil deeds will not inherit His kingdom (Gal 5:19-21). Christ reminds us that we all have sinned & fallen short of His glory but He justifies us freely through His grace (Rom 3:23-24). He calls each one of us to share in His coming this Christmas with repentance, reconciliation, forgiveness, mercy, humility, godliness, faith, love & good works; according to His will.
Hosanna to the Son of David, blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD, Hosanna in the highest. With humility in our hearts we seek Your mercy Jesus, give us the grace to forgive those who have offended us, pardon our sins & cover us with Your precious blood. Go before us Father & make the crooked paths straight; break the gates of bronze & cut the bars of iron, give us the treasures of darkness & hidden riches of secret places. Fight for us Lord that whatever has been lost or stolen by the evil one may be restored for You give victory to Your anointed ones. We humbly ask You Lord to guide & protect us during this festive season for Your name sake. Amen
