Today’s devotion for today is based on Matthew 21:42, “Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: “‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.’”
There were so many reasons that people rejected Jesus. Some found his message was too exclusive. Jesus preached that he is the only way, truth, and life. His road was too narrow, and so they rejected him. For countless others, though, Jesus’ love became their source of guidance. His forgiveness and grace became the standard upon which God would build their faith. The work he accomplished made eternal life theirs.
While you may see many rejecting him today, that does not change the fact that he is still the cornerstone. Believe in him. Build your life around him. With him, you have everything. Without him, you have nothing. The forgiveness he won for you means your relationship with God is restored, and eternal life in heaven is yours.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, you have done this marvelous thing in making Jesus the cornerstone. Please help me to trust in him alone. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
