What is a cornerstone? It is also called a foundation stone. The cornerstone is the first stone set in the construction of a masonry foundation. It is the most important stone laid since all other stones are set in reference to the cornerstone. The cornerstone determines the position of the entire structure.
And so it should be. Jesus, our Chief Cornerstone, should be laid first in our hearts and lives. All other things in our lives should be set in reference to Him.
For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.”
1 Peter 2:6
