Jesus, our Cornerstone


Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious. (1 Peter 2:4)

  • The most precious things in life are not material items.
     
  • Rather, it is the people who have loved us and built into our lives.
     
  • And we don’t know what we would do without them.
     
  • When the apostle Peter referred to Jesus as “a chief cornerstone, elect, precious” (1 Peter 2:6), it meant Jesus is truly precious to him.
     
  • It was his prized possession above everything and everyone else.
     
  • So is Jesus to us.
     
  • Where would we be today without the constant unfailing companionship of His faithful presence, wise and perfect guidance, merciful patience, comfort, and transforming reproof?
     
  • What would we do without Him? We just can’t imagine!
     
  • Lord, help us not to focus on fleeting treasures, but on You, our most precious treasure.
     
  • Lord, teach us the joy of reveling in You, and Your loving presence and provision in our lives.
     
  • Of all that is precious, Jesus tops the list.
