41 As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it 42 and said, “If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes. 43 The days will come on you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side. 44 They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God’s coming to you.”
Jesus gives a very forthright summation of Jerusalem. He makes plain that the people of the city have missed their opportunity of salvation. What a dreadful thought that there can be a time where we place ourselves beyond salvation.
I pray that I would remain soft before you Lord at all times experiencing Your salvation.
