“And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath,” Luke 4:28
When the Lord brought home to His congregation the real state of their hearts, it turned out that on their side they were not poor, blind, crushed, and captives; they were not at all in that spirit, for they took Him to the brow of the hill tto cast Him down. We do not learn grace very readily; it is wonderful how little one’s heart is prepared to take in pure grace. Conviction of sin is of divine sovereignty; it is a divine operation which we cannot explain and no human power can bring about.
- C.A. Coates, (1862-1945)
