Do you know what “Angular stone” is?
The angular stone was the cornerstone used in ancient constructions.
It was characterized by being the first stone placed in the corner of the building. From this stone, it was defined where the other stones would be placed. She was the beginning and foundation of the building, a specific stone.
In the bible this stone is not something, it is someone!
Psalm 118:22: “The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone“.
But who is this stone?
After this passage from Psalms we see in Ephesians 2:20: “Built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.“
Jesus is the cornerstone, it is from Him that it was possible to build a stronger construction, it’s for Him and through Him that we had the privilege of becoming the other subsequent stones. Today we can be the body of Christ!
The miracle of the cross
It was by the resurrection of Jesus that the veil that separates us from the presence of God was torn. That’s why today, we can be so close to Him that we are part of His body. Before He was God of a specific room, the Holy of Holies, something separate from the other rooms.
When on the third day Jesus returned, God became a close father, where we don’t need to scream. He is so close and available to us today that just thinking about something He hears us. You are a member of this body, you today can base your construction on the cornerstone.
Have you based your construction on the Cornerstone? Are your choices and decisions based on Christ? Take time to reflect on this word and, if necessary, start the construction again by positioning this specific stone first.
