Verse of the Day

For it is contained in Scripture: Look! I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and honoured cornerstone, and the one who believes in Him will never be put to shame! [HCSB] 1 Peter 2:6

……

Your foundation is so important. Ancient elements of Jewish tradition considered the cornerstone to be a special stone in the temple and as a title for the Messiah. Now, God declared in Isaiah 28:16 that He placed a stone in Zion, a chosen and honoured cornerstone, and here Peter identified #Jesus as not only that stone mentioned in Isaiah, appointed by God, but also as the most honoured/precious/valued #cornerstone; the Chief Stone from whom the whole structure takes its shape. How about that? The shape of your life is determined by the cornerstone you’re built upon! One doesn’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure out that a stone of value, of greater worth, of strong excellent characterises will help a building stand the test of time. A cornerstone can’t just be any ordinary stone; it has to be quite extra-ordinary. Question is the cornerstone shaping your life, what kind of stone is it? How is it shaping your life? Still confused? Are you ready to try making Jesus, the tried and tested Chief stone your Cornerstone? #PeterChallenge #Verseoftheday

For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. [NLT] Isaiah 9:6

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas to you all. For indeed, unto us a Child was born, called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty mighty God, our Prince of peace and forever and ever our everlasting, without end the Father and founder of our faith. He is God, He is King, and He is our Saviour Jesus Christ. As we celebrate His birth today, amidst the eating and the drinking, we are grateful for His life, without which there would be no hope for us all. But thank God for Him, thank God for God, thank God for the Life of His precious son, Jesus Christ our Lord and King. And Merry, merry Christmas my dearest friends again.
