I'm working my way through the Institute Manual for the first half of the Old Testament. Currently, I'm reading a section on Symbolism of Christ. I decided to go through each symbol and record in my journal how I see Christ as that symbol. This morning, I pondered Cornerstone. Once I got a definition of cornerstone, it was very clear and simple.
Cornerstone: A cornerstone is the first stone set in the construction of a masonry foundation; all other stones will be set in reference to this stone thus determining the position of the entire structure.
The Church/Gospel uses Christ as its Cornerstone - all doctrines/teachings/practices use Christ as a reference. We also should do this in our lives - build our lives/decisions in reference to Him and His teachings, and the Gospel.
