"REJECTED STONES"

Rev. Lon Lorton

February 18, 2018

Psalm 18; Mark 12:1-11

It's tough to feel rejected.

Israel was rejected by surrounding nations as an unimportant and dishonorable people.

God's view was not the view of the world.  Psalm 118:21-24; Mark 12:10-11

Jesus will become our cornerstone if we will only allow Him.

Saint Augustine's Pyramid of priorities:

  • What's most important, really?

Centuries ago, it was believed that the sun revolved around the earth (that where we are is most important).  We know now that belief was wrong.  Many of us have gotten it wrong in a spiritual sense, and still haven't gotten it right.  God does not revolve around you or me.  He is the Center of our spiritual universe.  And that means, as Scripture tells us, that Jesus is our true Cornerstone.
