The Cornerstone

3 Mar

The Cornerstone…

Much of the modern world was built by the Jewish people. Modern capitalism had its roots in the Middle Ages among Jewish merchants and moneylenders. Also modern communism was built by a Jewish man, Karl Marx.

Why is that? The answer is found in Psalm 118; the Jewish people are called, “the builders.” They were called by God to be His builders, to build His kingdom on earth. It also says, ‘The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.’

In other words, though the Jewish people are God’s builders, they would reject the cornerstone of their Temple. The Cornerstone is Jesus. Without that cornerstone, whatever house is built, will be empty.

That’s why communism had to fail, and capitalism without God, is empty. It’s not just true for the Jewish people but for you too – for you are called to be a builder.

You’re building your life. What are you building right now – your looks, reputation, abilities or comfort? If you build your life on these things other than Jesus, then your life will be empty.

Come back to the foundation and ground everything you do upon the rock that the builders rejected: Jesus, the Cornerstone.

The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. Psalm 118: 22-23

Seek today, to be a builder for God. Aim to build up in everything you do.

Read Psalm 118

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
