Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men,
but chosen by God and precious . . .
(1 Peter 2:4)
A Jewish legend tells of the rock chosen for the cornerstone of the temple. It had been lost and neglected. Finally, it was rediscovered and elevated to its place of significance. In the same way, God has given to the Cornerstone, Jesus Christ, His place of pre-eminence so man shall not take it away. As the Chief Cornerstone, Jesus Christ is the living link between the old and the new. He binds together the church and all those who have trusted in Him.
