Building on the Rock

Thoughts by Pastor Brad...

ISAIAH 28:16 says, “Therefore, thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.” Isaiah is prophesying the destruction of Jerusalem and the judgment against the rebellious people of Judah. They refused to worship the Lord and exchanged their allegiance for the pagan gods of the surrounding nations. In the middle of the judgments, Isaiah gives this beautiful promise that Jesus Christ would become the foundation and Cornerstone for the new Zion. The promise is clear that whoever believes in Jesus and builds their lives on His righteousness will not “act hastily” or be moved. How is your life building project going? Are you building on the Rock and chief Cornerstone Jesus Christ, or the sand of this world of sin? It’s hard work building on the Rock, but it will stand the test of time. Build your life on Jesus and make Him the Cornerstone that will be the focus of alignment for all your decisions today.
