“That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:” Psalms 144:12Text — Psalm 114:11-15
A cornerstone is a ceremonial stone set at a corner of a building, joining two outside walls. Architects usually carve on the cornerstone, the starting and completion dates of construction, the name of the architect, owner of the building, and some other important details. This shows how important a cornerstone is. The prayer of the Psalmist is “That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:” (Psalms 144:12) This is who God wants you to be as a boy or girl. As a cornerstone, it means you are a person of great importance, you are special.
The Bible describes Jesus Christ as the “Chief Cornerstone” of our faith. As the Chief Cornerstone, Jesus ensures the stability of the whole system of our salvation. He is the solid Rock on which all friends of Jesus stand. Friends of Jesus are the building, while our Lord Jesus Christ is the chief Cornerstone on which the whole building rests. Two things we must learn in today’s topic: (i) As a friend of Jesus Christ, you are expected to possess great spiritual quality. (il) You must always depend on the Chief Cornerstone, Jesus Christ Who cannot fail. He is ever dependable and trustworthy. He will fulfill all His promises. Put your trust in Him at all times.
1 Peter 2:2-6
