Easter Sunday (April 8, 2007)
“The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes” (vv. 22, 23).
The poor, disenfranchised, and oppressed are the only ones who really get it. They understand the value of righteousness, because they suffer so much the lack thereof.
I had lunch just a couple of days ago with a Bosnian and a Lebanese. I’ll bet they have a thirst for righteousness. I’m going to ask them about this the next time we’re together. In Jesus there is a way forward for Bosnia, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Sudan, Russia, et. al. There is a way forward for us too! A marvelous (v. 23) thing indeed…
