All the people were listening to Him and hanging on His words.
My Beloved, I can imagine the scene all the people in the temple area were listening to You and hanging on to every word. The place was packed as they listened to Your mellifluous voice, Your splendid Presence, the love emanating from You. The charm and wisdom of Your words which all made such perfect sense. You stirred their souls, You fired their imaginations. The wicked stood on the side lines filled with envy, wickedness and hatred. They chose to stand stand outside the circle of Your love and refused the salvation, hope and joy You offered. The same is true of us today as well.
