Last week, a storm created a big Sinkhole in the middle of a road in a town in Guatemala.
This is the world we are living in...a big HOLE! Someone's got to plug it and that person is none other than JESUS CHRIST! Jesus is the CORNERSTONE for everything! You can be successful in life but success without Jesus is no success at all. And I am not going to apologize for that!

There are several meanings to the usage of cornerstones…

1. A stone that forms a corner or angle in a structure in making sure that the building is evenly balanced and stable when completed.
2. A stone prominently situated near the base of a corner in a building as a foundation stone. Such a stone, often inscribed, laid at a ceremony marking the origin of a building.
3. A fundamental principle or underlying concept: base, basis, foundation, fundamental.
4. An indispensable and fundamental basis: the cornerstone of an argument.

(Mat 21:42-44) Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the Scriptures: "'The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone (or cornerstone) ; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes'? "Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit. He who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed."

To make it plain and simple, rejecting Jesus means living a life which is unbalanced and meaningless. There is no foundation whatsoever to stand on, no past nor future to base on. These people just live for the present and the only treasure is the pleasure of this world. Without the CornerStone Jesus, eventually there will be nothing but brokenness and destruction.

With Jesus as our Cornerstone, we shall not only stand firm, we are ready for battles ahead in the kingdom of God!

Are you in deep hole right now? Try Jesus!
