“The stone which the builders rejected Has become the head of the corner.” (Psalm 118:22)
“Coming to Him, a living stone, rejected by men but with God chosen and precious, you yourselves also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house into a holy priesthood to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. “ (1 Peter 2:4-5)
Psalm 118 reveals Christ as the cornerstone for God’s building. Verses 22-24 are quoted by the Lord Jesus in Matt 21 in reference to Himself. He is the stone who was rejected by men, but who joins us together with fellow members of His Body to make us God’s corporate testimony. As such a One, he is precious to God.
