THEME: TRUST IN GOD
1 Peter 2:6-7 NIV
“For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, “The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,”
-Peter here paints the picture of Jesus Christ as the cornerstone and believers are the living stones. The cornerstone determines the design and orientation of the building as the most significant stone in the structure. Two attitudes therefore come out clearly from these scriptures, those who reject Christ and stumble, but those who trust in Him are delivered from shame.
Lord Jesus we believe in You, we trust in You, we enthrone You, we exult You, we honor You and put all our trust in You. Lord Jesus You are the stone that the builders rejected and have become the chief cornerstone. You are the chosen and precious cornerstone stone. Those who believe in You according to Your word will never be put to shame. We believe in You dear Lord Jesus and trust in You with confidence that You will deliver us from any form of shame, either currently or in the future. May You liberate us from any temptation and sin that so easily ensnares us and grant us rest in Your presence. May Your mercies which are new each morning overcome every weight of sin as we rely upon You dear Lord Jesus our precious cornerstone. May You forgive us all our trespasses and wash us with Your precious blood. May You deliver all those who are suffering in the street without food, shelter and clothing, and grant them rest in the purposes for which You have called them. May You bless the love of Christ foundation and those whose rely on it, and prosper all our plans according to Your great purpose. We ask all this through Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen
