Marvel at the Lord’s doing

 

“This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.” Psalms 118:23, ESV.

We affirmed the words of the psalmist as those who are redeemed by the Lord and whose life and future is built upon the cornerstone. We rejoice in God’s marvelous work, despite the rejection of the builders.

Who are those who rejected him? Religious leaders, Roman leaders, Jewish multitudes. In a modern context, he is still rejected by various human authorities. As those who follow Christ, we are to marvel and rejoice despite this, because God’s work is good, and indeed his love endures forever. Psalm 118:29, “Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!”

Shalom.
