Psalm 118:22

Verse: The stone that the builders rejected
                  has now become the cornerstone.

Insight: This verse was prophetic in that Jesus was the stone that would be rejected by the religious elite because of his background, lack of education, and relationships, yet God placed Jesus as the cornerstone of our salvation. Our identity and value come from God alone because only he knows the plan, and the purpose he created us to serve.

Prayer: God, we are so thankful that you look beyond the rejections to our real value and purpose that only comes from you. Help us to be ready and willing to serve in the role that you have designed for us. Thank you for placing your son. Jesus, as the cornerstone of our salvation. All praise and glory to you. In your name, Amen.
