Because He Came ...
I have a Cornerstone upon which to build my life.
Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:
Matthew 21:42 (NKJV)
‘The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone.
This was the Lord’s doing,
And it is marvelous in our eyes’?
Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture,
1 Peter 2:6-8 (NKJV)
“Behold, I lay in Zion
A chief cornerstone, elect, precious,
And he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.”Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient,“The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone,”and“A stone of stumbling
And a rock of offense.”They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed.
So ... is He precious or offensive to you? There's no sitting on the fence. It's one or the other.
If He is precious to you ... what are you doing about it?
