"When the Queen of Sheba had seen the wisdom of Solomon, and the temple that he had built, there was no more spirit in her" (I Kings 10:4,5).

SHE HEARD in her own country about the glory of Solomon's kingdom, so SHE CAME to see and to PROVE HIM with questions. He told her all her questions; and when SHE SAW his wisdom, glory, and his ascent to the temple of the Lord, she was so overwhelmed and awed that SHE COULD NOT SPEAK!

This is a picture of the seeking sinner who hears of Christ, comes to Him, and has revealed to him the wisdom, glory and exaltation of the Lord Jesus at God's right hand. He, like Mary, sits at His feet unable to find words to say. Be concerned about the WORDY new converts, not the one who cannot find words to express his joy and vision of Christ, the Redeemer.
