CONFESSION: Psalm 38:6-9
READING: Mark 12:1-12
REFLECTION: (Medicine for the soul) Dwight L. Moody
The very medicine that we don’t like is the medicine that we ought to have, and the very truths that men object to, and that make them angry, are the truths that bring them to the cross of Christ. What we want is to preach Christ in season and out of season-
“Tell the old, old story, of unseen things above, of Jesus and His glory, and of Jesus and His love.”
Why, the stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. The very stone that they would not have was the very stone that God chose, and upon this stone He is building His Church now—upon the Rock of Ages. It is Christ, yes, Christ that men want, and then they will get sure food for eternity.
Is there a time in your life when you found it convenient to reject Jesus? Perhaps you thought you could repent later. What brought you back to the gospel?
