MONTHLY DEVOTIONAL FOR 8th AUGUST

THE 8th of AUGUST

THE “CHIEF CORNER STONE” IS JESUS CHRIST

Therefore also it is contained in the scripture, “Behold, I lay in Zion a chief cornerstone, elect, precious: and he that believes on Him shall not be confounded.” – 1 Peter 2:6

The apostle Peter wants to make sure that we understand that Jesus completely changed the religious system of the Old Covenant, by fulfilling all the prophecies of the Old Testament, including the one quoted in the above verse, from Isaiah 28:16.

The cornerstone is the key stone, that bonds and holds together two walls that meet, resulting in firm, stable unity. Jesus has been chosen and very honored by Father God and should be by us, too. He deserves all our honor, praise and obedience, not only for what He did for each of us, but also for who He is.

Jesus brought us back into union with God, by faith and obedience to Him. For those who choose to reject Christ and disobey the Word, He will become a stumbling stone (Isaiah 8:14-15) and will end up damned. But for all of us who choose Him and choose to love, honor, praise and live to please Him, Jesus forgives all our sins and we will not be judged for any of them.

SUGGESTED PRAYER

Glory and honor to Your holy Name Lord Jesus, for being who You are! Father God chose for You to come as a human, fulfill the law, pay for our sins, reconciling mankind back with God. Thank You Jesus for all You did! You prepared the way for me to walk in love and receive God’s promises, even if I am a Gentile. Father God, please help me live right, fulfilling Your call for me and to love and obey You everyday of my life. In the Name of Jesus I pray. Amen
