Music for December 8
Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:
“‘The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
this was the Lord’s doing,
and it is marvelous in our eyes’?
Jesus quotes Psalm 118:22 while talking to the Chief Priests and Pharisees. Not only is he fulfilling scripture but also further prophesying about his coming death and resurrection. Jesus also testifies that the rejection he received and would receive was his Father’s doing. What a comfort it is to know that the Son expressed His full trust in his Father while prophesying about his own death. Our hearts should fill with praise to the LORD for sending His Son to be rejected on our behalf. The cross is so wondrous and so wonderful! Praise Jesus!
O Come, O Come Emmanuel
The Wonder of the Cross
