Jesus looked directly at them and asked, “Then what is the meaning of that which is written: “‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone’? Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will be crushed.” Luke 20:17-18
Is Jesus the “Cornerstone” of your life? Or did you reject him? When we talk about Jesus being our Cornerstone, we mean he is the foundation on everything we do in life. As Jesus taught he is “The Rock” (Matthew 16:1*) and when the storms of life come, you will not waver. But will you build on the sand and the storms of life come, your life comes crashing down.
We need to make Jesus the Cornerstone or center of our life, to be planted like a tree with deep roots of faith. So when adversity or storms arrive, when will not be “uprooted” from our faith. Faith is the confidence of things hoped for (Hebrews 11:1)
Notice when we fall on the “Cornerstone” we will be broken, many times before we can be fixed we have to be broken. Often people don’t know they need a Savior until they have to be saved. God will take what is old and make it new again. The breaking is part of our rebirth or transformation into becoming who God created you to be.
Make Jesus your Chief Cornerstone and have the faith and confidence to stand on The Rock in Jesus Name Amen
