While getting ready for the day, I took twenty minutes to read and pray, as a daily routine in college; and so I was reading in first Peter chapter two, and I read a verse that became an amazing thought for the day.
I Peter 2:6 “wherefore also it is said in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.”
This verse is mentioned five times, in both Old and New Testament.
1. David prophesies Messiah as the corner stone.
Psalm 118:22 “The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.”
2. God proclaims his Son is the corner stone.
Isaiah 28:16 “Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste”
3. Jesus proclaims that he is the corner stone.
Matthew 21:42 “Jesus saith unto them, did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the stone is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing and it is marvellous in your eyes?
4. Paul told the Jews that they rejected the corner stone, Jesus Christ.
Acts 4:11 “This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders.”
