Summary: Christ lamenting over Jerusalem.

TEXT

"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!"

1. A SOLEMN PARAGRAPH

"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee…"

The inhabitants of Jerusalem were a guilty people. So are we.

My conscience felt and owned my guilt,

And plunged me in despair;

I saw my sins His blood had shed

And helped to nail Him there.

2. A SHELTERING PARENT

"how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens…"

Christ likens Himself to a hen, calling her young unto her. He is calling you to Himself today.

3. A SAFE PLACE

"under her wings…"

Psalm 36:7 "How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings".

Psalm 91:4 "He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust.

4. A SAD PREFERENCE

"and ye would not!"

Romans 10:21 "All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people".

As Methodists we believe in the doctrine of free-will. Every person can choose whether they receive or reject Jesus Christ.

Sinner, heed the warning voice,

Make the Lord your final choice;

Then all heaven will rejoice:

Be in time.

Come from darkness into light;

Come, let Jesus make you right;

Come, and start for heaven tonight:

Be in time.
