Thus were they taken in their own craftiness and utterly silenced.
This was a home thrust, and right well deserved by them. It may also be a lesson to us if we see great sinners converted while we ourselves remain undecided. Is there one of us in this condition?
If we oppose the Saviour we shall hurt only ourselves, but if we provoke him to punish us we shall be crushed as completely as if a huge rock had rolled upon us. Who will dare to be at enmity with Jesus?
Lo, the stone which once aside
By the builder’s hand was thrown,
See it now the building’s pride,
See it now the corner stone!
Lo, we hail Jehovah’s deed,
Strange and wondrous in our eyes!
Jesus Christ is Lord decreed,
Bid the voice of gladness rise.
