This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!

Psalm 118:24

Until recently I thought of this verse as applying to every single day, regardless of what comes our way. And indeed it does. But I only thought of this verse in that way. Until I read the two verses before it while working on a sermon.

The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. This is the Lord’s doing, it is marvelous in our eyes.

Psalm 118:22-23

The day that the Lord made was the day the builders rejected the stone. Jesus quoted this verse in Matthew 21 to reference his own rejection by the Pharisees and his subsequent crucifixion. God made that day.

Let that sink in.

God made the day the Pharisees would shout “crucify him.”

God made that day.

I could write so much more but it’s Sunday. Can’t wait to see you in worship.
