    V. 22- song, "Just have a little Talk With Jesus, tell Him all about our troubles, He will hear you when you cry, He will answer by 'n by ...............; I love that chorus. A visiting Pastor, Jerry Jones, sang this part of it during his message one Sunday a couple months ago. Every time I think of the song, I hear him singing it. What a great Pastor/author he is.

    V.44 - we are to 'fall' on Jesus and be broken; we are to spiritually fall at an altar of repentance and our will be broken so His will (spirit) can live in us.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Jesus was winding down His mission on earth and He gave the people some tough lessons we today should learn. Two of these are: never desecrate the House of God and we should not "fall on this stone and be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder" We should lean on Christ and have broken and contrite heart. Failing which hell beckons.
