Jesus Christ the Cornerstone

“You are coming to Christ, who is the living cornerstone of God’s temple. He was rejected by people, but he was chosen by God for great honor. And you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple. What’s more, you are his holy priests. Through the mediation of Jesus Christ, you offer spiritual sacrifices that please God. As the Scriptures say, “I am placing a cornerstone in Jerusalem, chosen for great honor, and anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.” 1 Peter‬ ‭2‬:‭4‬-‭6‬ NLT‬‬

Symbolic Stone

In architecture, a cornerstone is a foundational stone. A principal stone placed at the corner of the base of a building to secure its structure and help guide the builders in forming the entire building development. 

The cornerstone is the most reliable, most immovable, most secured of any in the structure. Once the cornerstone is placed, everything is aligned to it. 

Living Stone

The cornerstone determines every refinement in the continuing construction. Jesus Christ is this cornerstone in the life of believers, and the first living stone in building of the church body. 

Jesus Christ is our cornerstone, our foundation, our support, our strength that builds steadfastness in faith, hope and love, and who we are called to build upon.
