1 Samuel 31 depicts the tragic death of King Saul, the first anointed king of Israel. Sadly, he did not follow God as his successor King David would. Ultimately, he was lost in shame and suffered the tragic end of suicide. Thankfully, our greater King, the Lord Jesus, will always remain faithful, even as He conquers sin and death and hell on our behalf and for our salvation.

Jesus prophesies and foretells the destruction of Jerusalem that would occur in AD 70. Because of His faithful shepherding, many Christians escaped the assault and destruction of Jerusalem at the hands of the Romans. That destruction was only a type and a symbol of the persecution that Christians in every generation will face. God is faithful to guard His people and keep them safe, even through death.

In this passage, Jesus begins His last teaching discourse in Matthew’s Gospel. He outlines for His disciples and for all people how they are to act as Kingdom citizens. They are not to be filled with pride, but rather they are to be humble before the Lord. We know this to be true because Jesus even humbles Himself as He comes to live and die for His people. May we all look to Him for salvation this day!

The Parable of the Tenants paints a stark and sad picture of God’s people refusing to hear God’s message and even rejecting His messengers. The most obvious occasion of this rejection was of Jesus Christ, God’s own Son. Thankfully, God appointed this time, and He has even working salvation and redemption through the cross of Christ. May we all come to Jesus and be found in Him so that we can bear fruit to the glory and praise of God the Father, the great owner of the vineyard!
