Jesus Christ - Foundation, Corner and Capping Stone

Bible References: 1 Peter 2:4-10; 1 Corinthians 3:11; Psalm 118:22; John 3:16-17; 1 Peter 2:5; Ephesians 2:20-22

Jesus Christ is our:
  • Foundation Stone
  • Corner Stone
  • Capping Stone
If Jesus Christ is not the foundation of the Church then it will wander through activities and programs and fall a part.  As a building is tied together in it's construction so the The Church is "tied"together by Jesus Christ.
Our living stone - JC is the foundation that we "the Church"build upon.  When Christians don't build upon the solid foundation in JC then we become weak, quarrel, fall a part.  Nothing but JC should be in the foundation.
Build a strong foundation

We need to make sure that we don't build into the foundation such acts as:
  • condemnation, judging others, negativity
but instead build into foundation:
  • compassion, healing, acceptance, salvation from sin through JC
When Tropical Cycone Yasi came through our region it tore a part many lives, property and businesses.  Likewise we need to make sure that the "Yasi's"of our lives don come along and rip a part our fellowship through unloving and unmerciful words and actions.

Each of us has a place in the house of God, a heritage and a role.  Jesus Christ knew who He IS and WHERE He belonged.  We can too - in Him.
