“The stone which the builders rejected, this became the chief corner stone; this came about from the Lord, and it is marvelous in our eyes” (Matthew 21:42)?
The biblical writers often utilize language from the building trades to depict what God is seeking to build and accomplish. In this construction process, one can vividly recognize the conflict between Divine intentions and human desires; the foundational mission of God’s Kingdom and the superfluous preferences of men. Christ is never an addition to our lives but the very corner stone of our existence. As The Cornerstone, his presence determines what is added and what fits in this life we are seeking to live for him.
