How do we build on a wild plot? Put up walls and a roof and a safe haven for the tenants. Yes, that is part of it. First, though we need to do some destroying. Some wrecking ball havoc is in order: some fire and brimstone. First, the lot is cleared, making room for the structures walls and roof and amenities.
In Jeremiah Ch, 1 we learn that Jesus is not just in the comfort game. He is learned in the ways of destruction too. Wouldn’t you want a warrior on your side when things get tough and the world wants to see you suffer?
