Cornerstone

Something to think about.

Cornerstone

6 For it stands in Scripture: “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious, and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.”7 So the honor is for you who believe, but for those who do not believe, “The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,”8 and “A stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense.”They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do. Peter 2:6-8

The crux of the problems of man is found in this verse. We are stumbling over the cornerstone that is Christ. To many, the ministry and life of Christ have become an offense not because it is offensive but because it is truth. People refuse to believe the truth that is Christ, and as a result, they stumble and fall. Christ is the rock that will not go away or be moved. He is the rock of salvation to those who believe in Him.

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
