Acts 4:11
“This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone.”
Peter has answered their question about whose name, and whose power was used to heal this man, Peter being filled with the Spirit, led by the Spirit now quotes from Psalm 118. Jesus had used this very verse to condemn some of these exact same men, telling them they would fulfill this prophecy, and now Peter tells them they did fill this prophecy full. Peter, known as the “rock” now speaks of the “Stone”, Jesus Christ, in the court room called Hall of Hewn Stone.

In the Hall of Hewn Stone
These men have their
hearts hewn
By Peter wielding
The Sword of the Spirit

Peter adds in rejected “by you” to make this personal and to show how hard hearted they were to miss the fact that Jesus is God, and when He came, they turned their back on Him, rejected Him and killed Him. Father God, continue to soften my heart to Your Truth and Your voice, so that when You approach me, and speak to me, I recognize You as Lord of my life, Savior of my soul, and live out Your purpose in my heart, head, and hands, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

ACTION: Recognize Jesus and honor Him
