Cornerstone

Last time we looked at the Pilate Stone discovered in the steps of the Herodian theatre. It had come to nothing. Recall how Pilate stood face to face with God and claimed to have all power over Him. Oh, the folly of man! Pilate was speaking to One who also has a stone that bears His name. Christ alone, the Cornerstone. All other stones are set in reference to Him. Everyone’s destiny here now and forever is determined by the Chief Cornerstone.

Is it any surprise then that Peter also describes this Cornerstone as “a stone of stumbling and a rock of offence”? To think how many have done a face plant upon this Stone? Piles and piles of offence and rejection all strewn around.

Is Christ alone, your Cornerstone?
