Broken or Crushed?
Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Jesus once described Himself as the “stone which the builders rejected” (Matt. 21:42). Then He said, “Whoever falls on this stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder” (v. 44). What in the world does that mean?
It tells me that everyone will experience brokenness. Some will experience brokenness in this life by humbly giving up their own way and letting Christ live through them. Those are the people who “fall on the stone.”
Others will refuse. God may allow them to walk in pride for a while, but eventually, either in this life or the next, He’ll bring down everything that exalts itself against Him. These people will be ground to powder.
Have you fallen on the Stone, Christ Jesus, choosing to humbly submit your will to God’s? Or are you resisting Him in pride, in danger of being crushed?
