Here at Calvary Presbyterian Church we're all going through an on-line devotional called Peace in An Anxious and Fearful World for the next two weeks. You can join us here if you wish.
Today's meditation in the devotional is based on Isaiah 28:16, which states, "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic." (NIV)
Jesus is that cornerstone. The author of the devotional points out that some of the cornerstones of the temple on Mount Zion were 38 feet long and weighed over 100 tons. That is rock solid! The author does on to say, "Now that seems like a pretty sure foundation to me. And that's exactly what we have in our precious Christ; an unbreakable, unshakable, immovable foundation the stands the test of time and keeps us standing int he face of panic-inducing winds and terrifying storms."
Today, take a few minutes to thank God that we have an incredible foundation for peace and calm in our Lord Jesus Christ!
