A SURE FOUNDATION
Isaiah 28:16 ” So this is what the Sovereign Lord says: ‘See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed.’ ”
The Scene: A partially completed house, symbolic of a Christian under construction–with Jesus as the cornerstone.
Without Jesus as the cornerstone, our faith will neither stand nor last through the trials God allows. Recognize that all Christians are incomplete until Jesus Christ returns to earth to take His bride, the Church, home to heaven.
Psalm 127:1 “Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.”
Through much study, prayer and meditation on God’s Word (the Holy Scriptures) one can grow in spiritual maturity, building our God-given house. Our born-again bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit.
1Peter 2:6 “For in Scripture it says, ‘ See, I lay a cornerstone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.’ ”
