Jesus Is...the Chief Cornerstone

Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem, a firm and tested stone. It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never be shaken.” Isaiah 28:16 NLT

When you and I set out to build a home, we begin with the foundation, a base that we trust will support the structure above it. In the same way, when we build our lives upon the foundation that is Jesus Christ, we know that we are safe; we trust that our past, our present, and our future is built securely upon the unwavering truths of God’s Kingdom. As we rest upon Jesus, our Chief Cornerstone, we have the opportunity to continue to experience even more of “Heavenly things,” for we have our heart, our mind, and our soul set upon that which cannot be shaken. No matter what challenges we may face upon this earth, we can trust that our Jesus has already prepared the victory.

Extended Reading: John 3:12 | Psalm 118: 22 | 1 Peter 2:6

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your great love for Your children. Thank you for the Chief Cornerstone that is Jesus Christ, that I can place every part of my life, both the wins and the losses, the ups and the downs, upon this immovable foundation. Amen.
