Upon this Rock
Jesus is both the Living Water as well as the rock or cornerstone upon which the church is built. 1 Peter 2:4-6 says, “And coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected by men, but choice and precious in the sight of God, you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For this is contained in scripture: ‘Behold I lay in Zion a choice stone, a precious corner stone, and he who believes in Him shall not be disappointed.”
Did you notice in that passage that as followers of Christ, we are living stones being built up in Him? As I read this passage, I am reminded that not only am I to be growing in the Lord, but my life needs to reflect that foundation upon which everything rests. When people see into the cracks of my life, do they see Jesus? Through word and deed, I need to be pouring forth His love to those around me, and leading others to the Living Water that is abundant and will never disappoint.
