“The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone, the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.” Mark 12:10
The cornerstone is the first stone set in the construction of a masonry foundation. It is the stone upon which the entire structure is built. All other stones are set in reference to the cornerstone.
In the same way, Jesus Christ is the foundation of our faith. Without His death and resurrection, we have no hope, no salvation from our sins, no access to the Father, no eternal life in Heaven when we die.
As a result, we should build our entire lives around Him. He should be the basis for everything we do and say, every decision we make. It is the least that we can do in response to what He did for us. It is our spiritual act of worship (Romans 12:1).
I hope you are having fun hanging your 25 Names of Jesus advent ornaments and discussing His names with your family! Go here to read the other posts in this series and to download the free printable ornaments if you want to follow along as we countdown to Christmas!
Happy December, friends! It's the most wonderful time of the year! :)
