CORNERSTONE

imageWalk Towards Easter. 11.
Didn’t you ever read this in the Scriptures?
” The stone rejected by the builders has now become the cornerstone. This is The Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous to see.” Mark 12:10-11
Q. How does Jesus apply Isaiah’s cornerstone to himself? ( Isaiah 28:16-22) What does it mean for you to make Jesus the Cornerstone of your life?
Jesus knew that He would be rejected, but He also knew that upon Him, the new covenant would be built. That all who came to Him , built their lives upon Him, would have a place with Him in eternity.
A cornerstone is the basic element of something; a foundation. When grand or important buildings and edifices are constructed a ceremony is often held in honour of the laying of the first stone, to mark the commencement of construction.
Often we make decisions in hast, neglecting to pray and seek God’s guidance , we steam ahead building our own future and then wonder why the walls begin to crumble down. We have built on our own dodgy foundation , one that has not been tested and proven.
” Look ! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem ( Zion ) . It is firm, a tested and precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never run away again.” Isaiah 28:16
What a beautiful promise , that we can confidently build our lives upon one who is secure, steadfast and unwavering, who has been proven and cherished, a reliable foundation.
When all else seems to be failing, when it seems as though our world is crashing in around us, our cornerstone stands firm. Jesus will forever be there waiting for us to place the building blocks of our lives securely upon Him.
