Throughout Christian history, a particular slogan identifies Christian disciples:
Christ is our Cornerstone.
Hear what Paul wrote as he rallied those in the early church:
“So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are citizens with the saints and also members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as our cornerstone. In him the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord.” Ephesians 2:20, 21
We are all “citizens with the saints” and members of God’s household. But what does this mean for us throughout the world? Our purpose is to glorify Christ, Our Cornerstone, in everything we do, even when Christ is often pushed aside in the midst of our busy and hectic lives. Let us be grounded and renewed by the fact that Christ is Our Cornerstone. And let us be joined together by God’s Word and Spirit. Then may our words become more than mere slogans, but life-changing thoughts and actions to the glory of Christ our Lord.
