A few weeks ago a huge boulder fell onto a highway that I drive on occasionally. This rock, which was as big as a small house, landed right in the middle of the two westbound lanes. Luckily, no one was hurt. You can imagine the devastation this rock would have caused if it had hit a vehicle.
The Bible describes God as our Rock of refuge. He is our protector; he is our fortress.
The New Testament says that Jesus is the capstone, or the cornerstone of our faith. If we build our lives on the Rock instead of the shifting sand, we will have joy in this life and protection for eternity.
However, those who reject Jesus will be destroyed by their lack of faith. Their decision to disbelieve will lead to their eternal doom.
1 Peter 2:7-8 says, “Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, “The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone,” and, “A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.”
No one who was travelling the road that day could ignore the huge rock in the road. We need to keep Jesus in front of people who are travelling life’s highway. We need to put them in a position where they cannot ignore Jesus. Then they will be forced to make a choice. We hope and pray that they will choose wisely.
