The Cornerstone

1 Peter 2:6-8 KJV Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. [7] Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, [8] And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
Jesus is our Cornerstone. He is the foundation of our life. He is the One that gives us salvation and eternal security. When we place our trust in Him, we are not confounded or dismayed and ashamed. Because our faith is in Him, He is precious to us. To those that do not believe in Him He often is a stumbling block to them. Without faith, they have a hard time accepting Him and His death for their salvation. We should, therefore, glory in His work on our behalf and consistently share the Gospel with others.
