Christ warned his enemies by means of a parable about God’s love that exceeds all human measure. Having received no fruit, a vineyard owner on earth would probably not be as patient as the owner in the parable.Yet, God has been good to the stubborn Jews for one thousand years. This goodness shows the greatness of His mercy and longsuffering. He has continually sent His messengers to a disobedient and covetous people, who rejected and killed them. God had surrounded His people with the protecting wall of the Mosaic Law, placing the temple and the altar as a winepress in the midst of it. But all those ordinances remained useless, for the hearts of the individuals were hardened and they did not want change.God persevered in His goodness to them. He sent other servants, who were also abused. He sent them John the Baptist and they had him beheaded. He sent His disciples to prepare His way. O, the riches of the patience and forbearance of God in continuing this despised and persecuted ministry. In spite of that, however, they persisted in their wickedness. One sin makes way for another of the same kind. They that are drunk with the blood of the saints add drunkenness to thirst, and still cry, “give, give.” At last, God sent His beloved Son. Christ was God’s last messenger. In Him, God Himself came to the earth to win the wicked through His great goodness. In this parable, Christ indirectly referred to Himself as the Son of God and His Father as the owner of the vineyard. He gave the Jewish delegation a clear answer as to the source of His authority. He insistently sought their submission to His Sonship and to God’s Fatherhood.According to the parable, all of the vinedressers were led by the spirit of hell in their decision to kill the Son of God. It is a goal of Satan to destroy God and His followers. He has no mercy. His fruit is only hatred, hopelessness, and malice.God’s love must, after all, destroy this evil spirit and those that walk after it. He will not offer His forgiveness endlessly. Today you live, and tomorrow you will die. Whoever rejects the Son of God chooses the way to hell, yet he who submits to the Son of God and serves Him faithfully and lovingly will enter the kingdom of the Father. What fruit of your life will you bring to Christ to express your thanks for His salvation and crucifixion?
